What is the retirement age in the UK?

You can access your state pension from the age of 66. However, you can access your private or workplace pension from the age of 55. It is important to note there are a lot of other factors which come into when you can retire.

What is tax planning?

Why is tax planning important?

Tax planning can often result in less money going towards taxes. With many of our clients, we find a much larger sum of money is going towards taxes when it doesn’t need to be. Planning helps to create a level of understanding between the government and the taxpayer. Furthermore, tax planning can result in economic stability, with more money available for personal use.

Does income protection cover losing your job?

Yes, income protection does cover losing your job. As long as losing your job is not directly your fault. Income protection will come into play if you can’t work due to illness or injury but not if you quit or get fired.
