As you would expect from the National Education Union’s partner for financial advice, we understand how the teachers’ pension scheme works, and can explain what provision you already have and how you could supplement this.

  • Will your pension scheme provide you with adequate income in retirement?
  • Have you considered other tax-efficient ways of boosting your income in retirement?
  • Do you have old pension funds, such as AVCs, FSAVCs or private pensions? If so, are they on track to provide the pension you expect?
  • Can you afford to retire early? What impact would this have on your pension in later life?
  • Should you take a tax-free lump sum?
  • Do you need fixed or variable income in retirement?
