When you want to retire (if you do at all), you still need an income to continue your lifestyle, this is referred to as a pension. If you have worked most of your life and paid your national insurance you will receive a state pension but for the majority of people this is not enough to rely on. A private pension or investments are therefore crucial to enjoy a comfortable retirement.
For a moderate lifestyle in retirement a single person will need £20,800 a year.
There are a number of different types of pensions;
