Pension Ireland: Your Complete Guide to Retirement Planning

Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to put away money for your retirement. That’s a big step, and we’re happy to help you along the way. Read on for everything you need to know about Pension Ireland and how it can help you achieve your financial goals – not only now but in years to come.

What is Pension Ireland?

Pension Ireland is a government-backed pension provider that was launched in 2016. It offers a range of services, including setting up a pension and managing it on an ongoing basis.

Pension Ireland is authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland and regulated by the Pensions Authority (Pensions Regulator) as an External Fund Manager (EFM).

How do I access a pension plan?

To access a pension plan, you must be employed by an employer who offers one. If your company does not offer one, or if you are self-employed and wish to set up your own pension plan (which is possible), there are other options available.

You can access a private pension provider such as AVIVA or ING DIRECT who will provide investment advice and help manage your funds for retirement. You can also apply for an occupational scheme through many large companies such as Amazon and Google; these schemes have strict criteria but may provide more benefits than those offered by the state in terms of tax reliefs or flexibility when accessing funds during retirement

What if I have a pension plan with another provider?

If you have a pension plan with another provider, we can help you transfer it to Pension Ireland. You can also keep your existing plan and invest in a range of different funds through us.

If you choose to transfer to Pension Ireland, we will guide you through the process so that there is no disruption to payments and no disruption to any benefits already paid out by another provider (including early retirement).

Should I transfer my existing pension to Pension Ireland?

If you have an existing pension, Pension Ireland can help you make the most of it.

We can provide advice on how to transfer your existing pension and make sure that it’s protected in the event of death or ill health. This is particularly important if the scheme has been left open-ended by not setting up a payment schedule when it was first set up.

You may also be able to take advantage of our flexible payment options, which allow customers to take out their entire fund as one lump sum or spread payments over a number of years at their discretion.

A great benefit of Pension Ireland is that it offers a range of services – from setting up a pension to managing it on an ongoing basis.
