What happens if I die before taking my retirement benefits?

Your pension may provide needed support to your family in several ways:

  • If your employer added additional life assurance to your plan, the relevant amount may be paid out
  • The value of your pension may be paid in a tax-free lump sum to your family or the person you nominate when you set up your retirement plan

The team at Maxim Wealth Management Ltd will discuss your options with you when drawing up your plan.
