You asked: What is the difference between a stakeholder pension and a personal pension?
There are several important differences between a stakeholder pension and a personal pension. Here are the main ones:
- The level of annual Fund charge you pay. The charge for a stakeholder pension is limited to 1% of the value of your pension, but this could be significantly higher for some personal pensions.
- The amount you can contribute. For a stakeholder pension, the minimum you can contribute is £20 and is set out in legislation. For a personal pension, the pension provider sets the minimum limit. The maximum you can contribute to an Aviva pension scheme is set out in legislation and is called the annual allowance.
- The types and range of investment options also differ. Stakeholder pensions tend to offer a smaller range of funds and investment options than personal pensions.
