Building a retirement worth waiting for ️
It’s not easy to know where to begin when it comes to planning for retirement, but we’re so pleased to have helped our customers take their first steps by opening a Moneybox Pension and tracking down £2.4m in lost pension pots!
This year, we teamed up with the Pension Geeks to bring you our annual Pension Awareness campaign. It was brilliant to see thousands of you read blogs, join the webinar, and, most importantly, take control of your retirement by consolidating your old pensions and boosting your savings.
Join our community of people building a retirement worth waiting for in 2024 – it’s never too early (or late!) to start.
Pension & tax rules apply.
Saving in a way that suits you
It’s been an exciting year in the world of savings as we launched our brand new Cash ISA! It’s been our most popular product launch to date. Plus, we’ve been able to deliver market-leading rates on our award-winning Cash ISA and Cash Lifetime ISA.
We were so glad to see hundreds of thousands of you take advantage of high interest rates to boost your savings. Take your savings to the next level in 2024 with a high-interest savings account.
For Cash ISA, rate is subject to conditions and includes a bonus rate for the first 12 months.
Important to know
5.09% AER (variable) includes a bonus rate of 0.94% for the first 12 months. A lower rate of 0.75% AER (variable) applies if certain in-app conditions aren’t met. Interest is accrued daily and paid into your account yearly on the date you opened your Cash ISA. The rate is variable, and we’ll inform you if it changes.
A 25% government penalty applies if you withdraw money from a Lifetime ISA for any reason other than buying your first home (up to £450,000) or for retirement. Your account also needs to be open for 12 months before you can withdraw penalty-free for a house purchase. It counts as ‘open’ once you’ve made your first contribution. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and is subject to change.
All investing should be regarded as longer term (minimum 5 years). The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.
Payments you make into your pension won’t be accessible until the minimum pension age (currently 55). When deciding whether to transfer your pension, it’s important to compare the charges, investment options & benefits between Moneybox and your old provider. Moneybox cannot accept a transfer from a pension your employer is currently paying into. If you’re not sure whether the Moneybox Pension is right for you, you may want to contact a suitably qualified financial adviser for help.
