I'm starting out - I don't have a plan for the future
From your first day at work, it makes sense to put something away for the time when you retire.
Tip one: It's never too early to get the saving habit
Even if it's only a small amount, the money you put away early in life can build up a tidy sum over time. And the sooner you start, the more you are likely to get.
Tip two: Your employer will enrol you in a workplace pension
Most employers will automatically enrol workers in a workplace pension scheme. Workers, employers and the government will contribute to workplace pensions.
I thought I would get a pension from the State
Most people get a State Pension, but the amount they get varies. In 2013-2014, the full basic State Pension for a single person is £110.15. You may also get an additional State Pension.
