Select Pension Plan

Making it simple to plan for your retirement.

Our Select Pension Plan is a personal pension that provides you with the choice and flexibility to decide where your money is invested, giving you control over your financial future.

Product overview

The Select Pension Plan is designed for people who wish to build up a pension pot in a tax-efficient manner, and provides choice over how to withdraw money in retirement. 

It aims to give you a flexible way to invest in a range of investment funds to accumulate a pension pot for your retirement, offering a choice of how and when you take money from your pension pot from the age of 55 (57 from 2028), as well as provide any remaining funds to your beneficiaries when you die. 

What is a personal pension?

With a personal pension plan for every £80 you invest the government will add £20. If you pay 40% or 45% income tax, you can reclaim additional tax relief directly from HMRC.

Your money is then invested to provide you with a private pension 'pot' you can access any time after age 55 (57 from 2028) - whether you’re still working or not.

Personal pensions are an attractive option due to their flexibility and simplicity, with your fund largely able to grow free from tax. 

Can I set up pension for my child?

Our Select Personal Pension Plan also lets you start a pension for your children to help establish their financial future. It's a simple, tax efficient way to give a child under the age of 18 a valuable head start.

For every £80 contributed a further £20 will be be added in tax relief. Invest a maximum contribution of up to £2,880 per child each tax year and HMRC will top this up with a further £720 to £3,600. This means that when your children are in their 20s and 30s they will already have a fund they can build on.

The benefits of our Select Personal Pension Plan:

  • Choice: invest in funds from NFU Mutual and selected providers.
  • Flexibility: the ability to make one-off switches from one fund to another or change where your future payments are invested.
  • Control: you can start, stop and restart regular payments or change the amount at any time.
  • Start small: invest from as little as £50 per month or lump sums of £1,000.
  • Track performance: with My Investments you can track the performance of your investments online.
  • Legacy: any remaining benefits left to your beneficiaries when you die are normally free of inheritance tax, with choices on how they can be taken.

You should be aware that the value of pensions may go down and you may get back less than you invested.

The tax treatment of pensions depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future.
