What’s a pension?

It’s an investment account which lets you save and invest for all your retirement goals

You can pay in up to your earnings each tax year and control how your pension savings are invested.

When you save into a pension you’ll get basic tax relief – a 25% top-up from the government for paying some of your earnings into your pension. (If you’re a higher taxpayer you can claim extra tax relief via your self-assessment.)

It has the added benefit that your pension investments can grow and earn income tax-free!

The earlier you start saving into a pension, the longer you have to keep it invested – and potentially grow your retirement savings more.

Pensions do have some things to watch out for  

You can pay in up to your earnings each year, but be aware of the upper limit on this of £60,000. (Your limit could be lower if you're a higher earner or you've taken money out of a pension.) 

You can only take money out of your pension once you reach the pension age (55 but increasing to 57 from 2028).  

Your personal circumstances affect how you're taxed and how much tax relief you’ll get. Tax and pension rules could change in future.

Because you can’t access your pension savings for a long time, investing them can make a lot of sense – so you can potentially grow your retirement pot. But as with all investing, your money is at risk.

    How will I pay it?

    It’s collected from the available cash in your pension once a month, so it’s spread over the whole year.

    Important to know

    You have to be a UK citizen and resident to open an account with Dodl. 

    The past performance of investments isn't an indicator of their future performance and their value can go down as well as up. This means you could get back less than you originally invested. 

    Dodl doesn’t offer any advice so if you’re not sure about the risks involved with investing, you should speak to a suitable financial adviser. 

    How you're taxed depends on your circumstances, and tax rules can change in future.
