A stakeholder pension is a money purchase pension provided by a bank, building society or insurance company. Trade unions may also offer stakeholder pensions to their members. You pay money to your pension to build your pension fund.
The pension provider invests the pension fund on your behalf. The value of your pension fund will be based on how much you have contributed and how well the fund’s investments have performed.
It is best to make regular contribution payments if you can. But you can stop payments for a while if you need to without it costing you anything. However, that will mean you have a smaller pension fund unless you make extra payments later.
When you reach the age when the stakeholder pension can be paid, you can use the fund you have built up to buy an annuity. This is a regular income, payable for life, which you can buy from a life insurance company.
The value of pensions and the income they produce can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested.
Tax treatment varies according to individual circumstances and is subject to change.
