As people develop through their lifetime they have an expectation that a time will come when they will be able to retire.
Pension arrangements have a number of advantages:
- when people come to retire they will experience a reduction in income – a pension makes up for some of this loss of income in retirement;
- pension schemes can provide protection in the form of lump sums and pensions to dependents in the event of a member’s death;
- In order to encourage pension schemes, the taxman provides tax relief on contributions made to pension schemes and the growth in their investments.
