Pensions advice

Most people are entitled to a State Pension when they reach State Pension age, but you may also have a personal or workplace pension. In this section, you can find free and impartial advice on pensions, annuities and planning for your retirement.

Pensions and annuities advice

  • State Pension

    The State Pension gives you a regular income from the government once you reach State Pension age.
  • Workplace pensions

    Every employer must provide a workplace pension. Workplace pensions can help you plan for your retirement.
  • Annuities

    An annuity is a type of insurance policy that can be bought using your pension and provide you with a regular income.
  • Tracing old pensions

    If you've had multiple jobs, you may have multiple pensions. The free Pension Tracing Service can help.
  • Pension scams

    It's possible to access your pension prior to retirement, but be wary of criminals who want to take advantage of this.
