How pension saving works

Saving into this pension is a simple, low cost and tax efficient way to save towards your future. 

  • Your plan is set up for you by Macmillan Cancer.
  • You and Macmillan Cancer pay in, and the government helps out in the form of tax relief.
  • The money that you and Macmillan Cancer pay into your plan builds up your pension pot.
  • Your pension pot is invested in one or more of our investment funds.
  • The aim of an investment fund is to grow the value of your pension pot but this isn’t always guaranteed.
  • Our investment management business incorporates a responsible investing approach, considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in its investment process.
  • You can decide what to do with your money, and how you take it from age 55, whether or not you’ve stopped working.
