Save

If you're just starting your retirement savings journey with TPT, and you want to know what you can do to make the most of your money, start here.

The basics

You're a member of a Defined Contribution (or DC) pension scheme. There are three key elements to this kind of scheme.

  • Contributions

    We refer to the money that you and your employer pay in regularly as ‘contributions’. You can increase your contributions if you want to, so that you pay in more every month to help grow your savings. It's all taken directly from your pay.

    Contributions
  • Investments

    Your contributions are invested in some of the biggest companies, both in the UK and worldwide. That gives your money a chance to grow over the long term so that, hopefully, you have more to work with when you take it from the Scheme.

  • Retirement age

    The date you choose to take your retirement savings from the Scheme is important, especially as you get closer to it. You can take your savings at any age from 55. We’ll initially set a retirement date for you, but you can change it at any time.

Making contributions

The amount you pay into the Scheme is key – the more you pay in now, the more you’ll have to enjoy when you come to take your savings.
