A simple way to invest for the future
Invest for the long-term and make the most of the tax benefits that a pension brings.
If you don’t want to think about where and how your pension savings are invested, you can hand over all the decisions to our experts. Depending on how far off retirement you are, we’ll move your money between carefully chosen funds. We'll aim to give you growth in the early years, then reduce the risk of large fluctuations in the value of your pension as you get closer to retirement. However, there's no guarantee this will be beneficial to your pension.
An investment for their future
You can start investing towards your children’s or granchildren’s retirement with a Stakeholder Pension in their names. The money will stay invested until they’re at least 55 years old – so there should be plenty of opportunity for the money to grow.
Clear and simple charges
No need to worry about complex charging structures or hidden extras.
There’s just one clear fund charge – our annual fund charge, capped at 1%.
And you won’t have to pay any charges for setting up your investment or for switching money between funds.
What our Stakeholder Pension offers
Save for your retirement with our affordable and flexible pension that’s built around you.
- Manage online
Manage your pension online in MyAviva using your policy number. You can view your pension value, switch funds, change payments and even change your retirement age
- Flexible retirement options
From age 55, you can take a lump sum payment, keep your pension invested and take money out, convert it to a guaranteed income or a combination of these
- Save for your children
Give your children or grandchildren a head start by opening a pension on their behalf. You can pay in up to £2,880 for each child each year
- Affordable payments
Start your Stakeholder Pension with as little as £20 a month. And you can change that amount or stop and start payments when you need to – so you can build your pension around your budget
- Tax efficient
When you make a payment into your pension, you get basic rate tax relief from the government on up to 100% of your annual earnings or an annual allowance of £40,000. In most cases, this means that we automatically add 20% to the payment – so if you pay in £80, we add an extra £20. Tax rules and allowances may differ in Scotland and Wales
