During your working life, you have probably amassed a number of different pension plans with a variety of different providers. There are many different types of pensions and the rules associated with each plan can vary significantly. You may have an occupational defined benefit pension (often known as a final salary pension), a defined contribution pension, or a personal pension. Whatever plans you have, pension planning is a fundamental component of any retirement plan.
