Why shop around for my retirement income?

It certainly pays to shop around for your retirement income.

Whilst the company that you have saved with for all those years may have done a great job in investing your contributions, they may not necesarily provide the highest levels of income in your retirement.

I was contacted recently by a, soon to be, 65 year old gentleman who had received his retirement pack from his Pension provider, in which they quoted him an annual income for life. The pack, as they all do, highlighted that he had the right to shop around through something called an "Open Market Option"and that he should seek independant financial advice if he felt that he needed help. So, he did exactly that.

This proved to be a very wise and rewarding decision. We were able to go to many providers and, from those, obtain an income, on a like for like basis, 31% higher than he had already been quoted.

In addition, the higher income included for advice fees, so it really did feel like a "something for nothing" scenario.

Whilst we cannot guarantee obtaining a higher income, it really does pay to shop around and there is no cost in finding out one way or another.
