You know who is on Love Island..

.. but you don’t know what your State Pension might be

You may have already heard something like this on the radio or on Social Media but we think it is crucial to stress the importance on knowing your future financial position.

For those over 65’s on ‘average’ income 53% is derived from the State Pension, rising to 78% for those on the lowest income, according to the Pensions Policy Institute.  It is therefore a key element to retirement planning and whilst the pension age is being reviewed and the amounts paid may fall over time it will still form part of retirement income for many years to come.

Obtaining a State Pension forecast is simple to do, just follow the link below and use your existing Government Gateway ID or complete a paper form and send it to them.
