Here are 4 quick tips if considering starting or searching for pension advice.

Over the longer term your pension will become one of the largest assets you own.

The earlier you start the better.

1. How much can you afford to invest into your pension fund?

One disadvantage of building a pension fund is that you cant access until age 60+.

So you need to be sure that you wont need access to this money.

2. Take advantage of the tax breaks.

> You get tax relief on the money you invest into your pension. This means that if you invest EUR 200 then it will cost you EUR120 after tax relief if you pay tax at 40% . Or, net cost EUR 120 if a lower rate tax payer.

> Your money grows tax free.

> You will get a tax free lump sum at retirement.

3. How much will I need in my pension fund?

Best to look at your current spending and start with this figure.

We will then will be able to calculate and set a longer term target.

Even a small amount each month can build into a larger fund.

The figures above are based on level monthly pension investment of €250 and level monthly pension investment of €300. This illustration assumes an
investment return of 5% per annum. This rate is for illustration purposes only and is not guaranteed. Actual pension investment growth will depend on the
performance of the underlying investments and may be more or less than illustrated. The projected values are net of charges.
