Our Retirement Planning service
Changes in legislation have totally changed how EIS members can access their pensions and plan for their retirement.
State pension age is rising to 68 and the Teachers Pension Scheme is following suit but the good news is that you can now prepare for this and structure your plans in such a way as to allow you to retire early with much more flexibility than ever before.
We’ll take an expert look at your finances, and understand your retirement goals.
We will ascertain the level of funding you will need in order to achieve your retirement goals and suggest strategies for helping you to reach your target
We will help you to create a retirement plan and carry out regular reviews to ensure you stay on track and make the most of your money in retirement.

The current turmoil surrounding pensions has left people with uncertainty and confusion. However, in the long term, pension funds generally grow in value better than many other forms of investment.
The earlier in life you start a pension fund, the longer you have to contribute to it and the longer the fund has to ride out market fluctuations. When you add in the generous tax allowances from the government, it’s hard to find a better way to plan for retirement than with a pension.

Many people have exciting plans for their retirement – perhaps going on the holiday of a lifetime, moving home or taking up new hobbies. But these plans are unlikely to become reality for the many people who have not made adequate pension provision for their retirement.
If you are a member of the Scottish Teachers’ Superannuation Scheme you will know that you are making some provision for your retirement, but will it be enough?
Most Teachers will have a shortfall on their maximum possible Superannuation pension. There are a number of ways to reduce this shortfall and your EIS Independent Financial Adviser can help choose the most suitable method for you, tailoring the solutions to your specific needs and objectives.
The key to retirement planning is to start as early as possible. The longer your money is invested, the longer it has to grow! Delaying by even a year or two can make a big difference to the pension you could receive.

There has been a lot of uncertainty about pensions over the last few years and they are rarely out of the news. Since 2006, the government has changed the face of pension planning dramatically and the Superannuation Scheme is also going through a period of change.
You may have already done something to enhance your pension with Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs), Free Standing AVCs, Stakeholder Pension or a Personal Pension Plan. You may also have pensions from previous employment, out-with teaching.
These plans should be reviewed regularly to ensure that they are still suitable and on track to meet your requirements. A lot of older style pensions do not benefit from “Pensions Freedoms” , new rules that came in to force in 2015 offering more flexibility with regards to accessing certain types of pensions. It may be possible to switch these older style plans to a new more flexible retirement plan.

Whether you are approaching retirement or you have recently retired, there are often many areas of concern.
It is not always easy to find someone who can help with Superannuation queries, maximising income from AVCs, and offers sound investment advice.
That’s why we have launched a Retirement Advisory service, which is available to all EIS members and their family.
Some of the main issues we deal with involve investing your retirement lump sum for capital growth or to provide a regular income which can be fixed or flexible to help supplement your pension income.
An experienced Independent Financial Adviser with an excellent working knowledge of the Superannuation scheme can discuss your requirements and make a firm recommendation based on your individual circumstances.
Call us now on 0345 355 3242 for a consultation.
There are pension changes due to happen as a result of the outcome of the McCloud judgement. Please click on the link to find further information here.
The EIS website will be updated with any further developments as the impact become clear. The administrative and legislative changes required by the judgement should be in place later this year.
For retirals the SPPA like to have 3 – 4 month’s notice in order that your pension benefits are in place on time. The form you will need to complete and submit to them is available here:
This process also involves your employer.
There is also a word version available on their website Teachers – Forms | SPPA (pensions.gov.scot) (form 25)
You need to check your contract for the required notice period that you need to give your employer. Your employer also needs to fill out Part 2 of the Retirement form after you have completed Part 1. Your employer will then forward the completed form to SPPA for processing.
