Pensions and retirement plan FAQs

Does a pension have any effect on my state benefit?

A personal pension in no way effects your state pension. As a tax paying citizen you are legally entitled to this regardless of your financial situation.

Will I receive all my paperwork for reference?

Two copies of every piece of paperwork will be mailed out to, once copy for you to check, sign and return and the other copy for you to keep for your records.

What happens if my situation changes?

For simple amendments to your details our advisors can implement and confirm these over the phone. For larger changes that may directly or in-directly affect your investments and pensions we suggest you arrange a meeting with your Towergate advisor as soon as it's convenient.

I'm very busy and don't have much time for planning my weekend, let alone my retirement!

We aim to make the whole process as simple as possible at every stage. We can plan the initial consultation with you at your place of work or find a convenient time to call and go through the process with you over the phone.
