Financial Wellbeing – Consider Retirement Savings

It is widely accepted that financial planning is a key component of an individual’s overall wellbeing.  Saving for retirement is very important as people are living longer and more active lives in retirement.  From 2028 the state pension age will be 68 and the current state pension is €12,912. You will need to decide on whether this is enough to live on and if not where will the extra income come from.  Fastnet offer PAYE contractors the opportunity to contribute through payroll to a Personal Retirement Savings Account (PRSA).

 

Zurich Life is the Pension Manager for the Fastnet PRSA plan.  They are a part of the Zurich Financial Services group, which is a global leader in the financial services industry.  Zurich has over 30 years in business in Ireland. Invesco Ltd is the appointed Independent Benefit Consultancy to Fastnet.
