Planning for your retirement
What will be your source of income after you’ve retired? How much money will you be able to access? How much will you need? And how long will you need it for – that is, how long might you live? What are all the different retirement options and what do they mean? These are pressing questions no matter what your current age, and they become more urgent year by year.
Pension reforms have given us all more freedom in how we use our pension savings. For instance, it is no longer compulsory to buy an annuity (a guaranteed annual income for the rest of your life, in exchange for a lump sum from your pension pot). However, this greater choice can mean greater uncertainty over what to do.
Your retirement income will depend on several major financial decisions. These range from planning your pension many years in advance, to deciding how to use your accumulated funds at the point of retirement. Some of your choices may be irreversible (such as buying an annuity) and could affect not only the rest of your life, but also any inheritance that you hope to leave to your beneficiaries.
Independent financial advice taken before you retire, or at the point of retirement, is likely to leave you substantially better off in the long term. By taking into account your precise circumstances, your needs as an individual, and the options available from across the whole of the market, such advice typically pays for itself many times over, while enhancing your income considerably throughout your retirement years.
An independent financial adviser from a specialist at Worldwide Financial Planning can help you with all aspects of pensions and retirement planning, whether you are just starting to invest in a pension, or approaching the stage in life when you will need to use it.
Guidance on estate and succession planning
Inheritance tax can cost loved ones hundreds of thousands in the event of your death, yet it's possible to legally avoid huge swathes of it, or possibly pay none at all.
The most important thing to do is examine, with the help of one of our specialists who will understand your personal circumstances, to see if you’ll pay inheritance tax and what to do about it.
Worldwide Financial Planning is one of the UK’s leading firms of independent financial advisers specialising in inheritance tax advice and estate planning strategies. Whilst tax avoidance is illegal, mitigation is not. Our inheritance tax planning strategies include the use of trusts, nil rate band planning, deeds of variation and straight forward gift and will planning, to name just a few.
