Cost of Delay

cost of delay graphAssuming your retirement date is 25 years from now, the graph shows the cost of delaying a contribution of £100 per month for even 1 year (at a net cost of £960 for a basic rate tax payer) will cost you £7,038 in retirement savings. Wait 10 years and you will have over £50,000 less pension savings than if you’d started saving today. The message is clear – don’t delay, start saving today!

Once you’ve decided to start saving into a pension, you’ll need to choose where to save. There are many different providers to choose from, but your first task will usually be to select the type of pension that’s right for you.
