How to make the most of your workplace pension

Saving for retirement doesn't need to feel overwhelming. Your workplace pension is a pot of money you save into that you can access at retirement.

In the meantime, any money you save into your pension can be invested in lots of small pieces of companies, through what is known as a default fund. You can find out more about how workplace pensions work in the video below.

Building a healthy pension pot will make a significant difference to your retirement when it arrives.

Fortunately, building a healthy pension pot is easier than you might think. And making small changes now could make a big difference to your future.

Watch our short video to help you understand more about workplace pensions, this video looks at the money you could receive in retirement from the state pension, average outgoings and how a workplace pension could help boost your income in retirement.

Please note: This video is not personal advice. All investments and income can fall as well as rise in value, so you could get back less than you invest. If you are unsure of the suitability of an investment or course of action for your circumstances, please seek advice. Past performance should not be seen as a guide to the future.
