Your defined contribution AXA pension

Starting out

When you’re young, saving for the future might not seem like a priority.

Currently the maximum you can get from the State Pension is only £159.55 per week, so planning for your future sooner rather than later is the smart way to ensure your financial security. 

Imagine that from the age of 25 you stopped buying a £2.50 cup of coffee every day on your way to work and saved that money in your Personal Account instead. That £2.50 a day could be an extra £912.50 saved every year, or £36,500 by the time you retire at age 65. If you also assume some investment growth, for illustration purposes say 5% each year, it could be worth over £100,000 when you reach age 65.

Pensions might seem complicated but the idea is a simple one. It is an efficient way of saving for the future, as you get tax relief on your contributions and you also receive contributions from AXA.
