The State Pension gives you a good foundation for your retirement savings, but contributing to a workplace pension is a great way to help you get the life you want when you retire.
"It gives me piece of mind knowing that every month, part of my salary will be an investment in my future."
A workplace pension is a way of saving for your retirement that’s arranged by your employer.
It helps you save by automatically putting a percentage of your salary into the pension scheme each payday.
A big bonus with a workplace pension is that your employer will usually provide an extra contribution to your pension pot each month, on top of what you pay in.
Your workplace pension is your money, and is protected if your employer or workplace pension provider goes bust.
