Peace of mind income for your entire retirement

When you decide to stop work or reduce your working hours and want to draw benefits from your plans, our advisers will help you consider all of your options to structure your assets in the most appropriate and tax efficient way to provide the income you require. We generally recommend that you structure your assets to provide a secure and increasing level of income sufficient to cover your day-to-day living costs, with the remainder of your assets being used to cover non-essential flexible expenditure with any remainder passing to your beneficiaries. It is not uncommon for a person stopping work now to expect to live for another thirty years. It is important, therefore, that careful planning and advice are received and regular reviews take place to ensure that a person’s assets will provide for them over a long period of time. You should also discuss Care Fees Planning with VSL.

Remember: Past performance is no guarantee to future performance and investments may fall as well as rise and you may not get back your original investment.
