Why take out a pension today?

We have outlined below just some of the reasons why you should talk to one of our financial advisers today about securing your financial future.

State Pension

The current state pension may be sufficient to provide you with a basic level of retirement income. However, you need to decide whether this is enough for you to live on in retirement and if not, where your additional income will come from.

If you want to avoid a drop in your income you should start your pension early. The number of people aged over 65 years will increase from its current level to 1,500,000 in 2056. At present there are over 4 workers contributing to the support of every pensioner. This will fall to 2.7 in 2026 and to less than 1.5 workers per pensioner in 2056. These figures published by The Department of Social and Family Affairs highlight the increased requirement for people to consider pensions now.

Tax Relief

For every Euro you put into pension you will receive tax relief. For example. If you pay 41% tax, for every €100 you put into your pension you will receive a rebate of €41.

At retirement age you can opt to receive 25% of your pension fund as a tax free lump sum.

Retirement Age

Starting a pension early means you dictate when you retire.

Pensions, Self Employed

If you are self employed, you are required to pay tax due to the Revenue in any given year. How can you reduce the amount of Tax you pay?

You can reduce the amount of tax you have to pay by making a contribution to a PRSA or Personal Pension Plan before year end. Any money you contribute to your pension will reduce your taxable earnings and therefore your tax bill.

How much Tax Relief can I claim?

If you are self employed you can contribute up to the following percentages of earnings and claim tax relief in that year.

Up to 29 15% of NRE (Earnings)
30-39 20% of NRE (Earnings)
40-49 25% of NRE (Earnings)
50-54 30% of NRE (Earnings)
55-59 35% of NRE (Earnings)
60+ 40% of NRE (Earnings)
