Pausing pensions could be costly

Analysis* has revealed that reducing or stopping pension contributions, even for a relatively short period of time such as a year, can have a significant impact on your final pension pot, with savers potentially being thousands of pounds less well off in retirement. Almost all (93%) of those surveyed said they are feeling the impact of increasing costs and inflation. Whilst 77% expect to have to make cutbacks on spending or saving, an encouragingly low figure of 6% said they would reduce their pension contributions.

Before making any hasty decisions, be sure to seek professional advice to determine the impact pausing your pension contributions could have on your future finances. As ever, our experienced planners are at the end of the telephone and here to help.

The value of investments can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invested. The past is not a guide to future performance and past performance may not necessarily be repeated.
