‘Worth Knowing’

19 March 2021

This spring we’re running a series of articles called ‘Worth Knowing’ to help Atlas members take control of their pension savings – and their future. We want to make sure you’ve got everything you need to take full advantage of what Atlas gives you.

If you’re currently paying into Atlas, what happens to that chunk of money that disappears from your salary every month? When will you get it back, and how? And what can you do in the meantime to make it as much as possible?

And remember: it’s not just you paying in. When you’re paying into Atlas, your employer pays into your account too. That’s free money that you wouldn’t otherwise get! So how can you make it work for you?

If you aren’t paying in but you’ve still got savings in Atlas, what can you do with them? How can Atlas help you reach your retirement goals?

With people living longer than ever before, your retirement is likely to be a big part of your life. But unless you’ve thought about it in advance and saved up, you probably won’t get the retirement you want.

The good news is that there are things you can do now to get ready – and however far you are from retiring, the sooner you start, the better.

We’ll be posting articles over the next few months to help you get to grips with budget planning, investment, and your overall financial wellbeing as we start to look beyond the coronavirus pandemic. The more you know, the better you’ll be able to plan. You’ll be able to make the right decisions for you and take ownership of your future.

So look out for these messages, read them, and take action when there’s something you need to do!

Your Atlas pension has the potential to change your life. And that’s worth knowing.
