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 University of Surrey.
- You and University of Surrey pay in, and the government helps out in the form of tax relief.
- The money that you and University of Surrey 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.
