What are your options?

Retirement is one of life’s milestones that many of us look forward to. If you’ve paid onto a pension scheme while you’ve worked, it’s time to reap the rewards of your hard work. But pensions can be a minefield and you may have more options than you think. We have pulled together some useful articles exploring different ways to use your pension pot, from drawdowns to transferring plus a guide on everything you need to know about the State Pension to check what you are eligible for.

If you're short on time you can read our short guide to investment which highlights things to think about and pros and cons if you are considering investing to top up your retirement income. You can also see our at-a-glance guide to annuities; what they are, the different types available and what to consider.

At Yorkshire Building Society we created Our Money Movement because we could see how most of the information for people approaching retirement was overly complex and full of jargon and hidden charges. Our aim is simple. To provide plain, straight talking guidance to help you make informed decisions about your financial future.
