We can help you save for retirement

A pension from Standard Life Assurance Limited can be a great way to save for the future you want when you retire. The money you pay in gets a boost from tax relief, plus it’s invested so has the potential to grow. However, the value of any investment can go down as well as up and could be worth less than was paid in.

Tax rules and legislation can change. Tax treatment will depend on your individual circumstances.

Choose your Standard Life pension

At Standard Life we understand that different people have different needs.

So we have two main types of pension for you to choose from

Our personal pension

Our Active Money Person Pension (AMPP) is a simple and tax-efficient way to save for your retirement. You can:

  • Pay in from £80 a month or an £800 lump sum
  • Manage your plan online, including starting, stopping or changing payments
  • Choose from our Easy or DIY investment options depending on how much help you want
  • Transferring a pension to Standard Life is easy to do, when you apply. Having one pension plan could make your retirement planning easier to manage.

Transferring isn’t right for everyone. There‘s no guarantee you’ll get more. You could lose money by giving up valuable guarantees or benefits that you might have with other pensions.

Our Self-invested Personal Pension (SIPP)

If you're looking for wider choice of investment options, our SIPP could be for you. It's designed for experienced investors who are comfortable regularly reviewing their pension investments to make sure they continue to meet their needs, goals and attitude to risk:

  • Access a wider range of investment options than our personal pension
  • Pay in from £80 a month or an £800 lump sum each year if your plan value is over £50,000. Or from £240 a month or a £2,400 lump sum each year if your plan value is less than £50,000
  • Manage your plan online, including starting, stopping or changing payments

If you’d like to apply for a SIPP today call us on 0345 272 8810. You can also read more about our SIPP..
