Work out your costs

Staying in control of your finances isn't always easy, but it's important to plan for your future and ​keep your pension savings on track for the retirement you want.

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has produced  'Retirement Living Standards' - a useful guide to help you work out the income you might need to afford different lifestyles during your retirement years.

Remember it's always a good idea to get independent advice for your long-term ​financial planning.
