What happens when an employee retires?
Your employee must buy an annuity with their retirement savings to provide them with a monthly income during retirement. As part of government’s retirement default regulations, all funds are required to have an annuity strategy in place. The trustees of the FundsAtWork Umbrella Funds have chosen the Golden Income With-Profit Annuity as their annuity strategy as it meets the needs of most pensioners. Employees can select this annuity option or any other annuity offered by Momentum.
What are my employees’ options when they change jobs?
They can cash out their retirement savings, keep their retirement savings in the Umbrella Fund when leaving their employer as paid-up members, or move their retirement savings to the Momentum Corporate Preservation Fund. Members are encouraged to preserve their retirement savings and should contact their financial adviser before making a decision.
How can my employees make sure they have enough money at retirement?
There are various ways employees can boost their retirement savings, such as increase their contribution rate, choose an investment portfolio that targets a higher return, keep their retirement savings invested when they change employers or make additional voluntary contributions.
