Retirement is one of the most important stages in anyone’s life.

After years of working hard and saving money into a pension it’s now time to secure your retirement income.

Buying a pension annuity converts the money you have saved in your pension into a regular income which will be paid for the rest of your life – or longer dependent on your annuity choices.

Don’t make a very expensive mistake. 

It’s very easy to simply sign your forms and accept the annuity offered from your current pension provider…but that could literally cost you thousands of pounds!

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to exercise your ‘Open Market Option‘. This allows you to search the market and get quotes from other annuity providers.

If you’re worried that it’s complicated and time-consuming Key can do all the hard work for you.
