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.
You're a member of a Defined Contribution (or DC) pension scheme. There are three key elements to this kind of scheme.
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
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.Investments
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.Retirement age
You can choose to pay more than the minimum if you want to. Remember – you're saving for the long term, so a little now is better than nothing at all.
When you first join your employer, it’s likely you’ll be automatically enrolled into the Scheme. From there, you can make changes to your contributions if you want to.Find out more
