What is a defined benefit pension?

Question mark icon

A defined benefit pension offers you a set benefit each year after you retire. This is usually based on the number of years that you worked for your employer and your salary while working. Sometimes this is your final salary, and sometimes an average of your salary over your career. How much retirement income you might receive is determined by the rules of the pension scheme, rather than the amount you’ve paid in plus any growth over time.
