When we retire we all look forward to enjoying a level of financial security that allows us to maintain our current lifestyle and care for our loved ones. However it's likely that the state pension might not provide enough for that. That's why having a separate pension plan and putting some money aside regularly is a good idea.
Our Retirement Pension Plan is a personal savings policy designed for your retirement. It's a unit-linked life assurance plan that brings together a broad range of global investment opportunities under one roof in a tax-efficient manner.
It aims to build up a sum of money which will be used to provide a tax-free sum when you retire (up to 30% of the sum) as well as a regular income to supplement the state pension.
- A long-term contract of insurance which accepts both regular and lump sum contributions
- Cost effective way of indirectly investing in global and local financial markets
- Switch between funds to react to market developments
- Suitable whether you're employed or self employed
- Start a plan for your partner, if tax credit eligibility criteria are met
The Commissioner of Revenue will issue you with a tax credit equal to 25% of your contribution up to a maximum of €500 or such other amount as may be prescribed from time to time.
The tax credit, which will be issued by the Inland Revenue Department, can be applied by an automatic deduction to the total tax amount payable or may be sent in the form of a cheque, depending on your type of employment.
If you have any queries about the payment of the tax credit you should speak directly to the Inland Revenue Department.
