"When you reach retirement your income is likely to be less. This is mostly because your income from work drops if you go part-time or when you stop working altogether. Your retirement income usually isn’t as much as your salary. You should think about what you can do with your pension pot to make sure you can make your money last through retirement" Pension Wise
"When you get a pension you pay tax on income above your tax-free Personal Allowance, just like you do on your salary. The only difference is that you can also take part of your pension pot tax-free. This money doesn’t use up any of your Personal Allowance. How much tax you pay depends on your total income and the tax rate that applies to you" Pension Wise
"People are living longer. On average, people aged 55 today will live to their mid to late 80s. Around 1 in 10 men and 1 in 5 women this age will live to 100 and receive their telegram from The Queen. Being more informed about how much longer you potentially have to live is no bad thing, especially when it comes to financial planning" Office for National Statistics
"While all investment funds are designed to produce investment returns over the medium to long term, the assets that a particular fund invests in will have an effect on determining the fund’s risk profile. This means whether the fund profile will be a low, medium or high risk. Funds that invest in high risk assets have the potential to produce higher investment returns over the longer term. But, they may lose value due to the volatility of the investment market. This means that they may be severely affected by market downturns and other factors." Pensions Advisory Service
