    period of recession it is most important that those who have built up pension funds get the highest possible income for their money It s amazing but true that the vast majority of pension pot holders still take the annuity with the existing provider without taking independent advice to ensure the highest possible income is payable from the funds available It is paramount to ensure that you make the most of what you have accumulated When you come to take your pension the income that is paid out to you is called an annuity An annuity is simply an income that will be paid to you for the rest of your life Annuity rates vary from one insurance company to the next and the company who you had your pension with will not necessarily be competitive Financial advisers have access to tools to get you the best annuity deal for your pension fund and can increase your income in retirement by over 20 As annuity rates are based on your life expectancy standard annuities just look at your age and gender to work out how much you will get However those who smoke or have a history of ill health and wish to take an income from their pension can medically prove a shorter life expectancy they can get an increased annuity rate paid to them These can be very straightforward to set up but all too often people just go with the easy option of the one offered by their existing provider As your pension is most people s second largest investment over their lifetimes it s essential that you give it the attention it deserves and seek independent financial advice ahead of it retirement From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More Management can drive a firm forward There are three common qualities that I have noticed in all leaders that in my view make them great Great leaders want to change the world A great leader is someone who desires to do something greater than just improve the bottom line Businesses are urged to prepare for Living Wage By Sam Beattie Billed as a way to boost the income of low paid workers there are questions over whether or not the new Living Wage rate will in fact jeopardise Northern Ireland s fragile job market Be smart and act quickly or you risk finishing up in Room 101 By Conor Devine
