Everybody wants to live a soft life. Comfort is a part of human nature, and in most cases, having financial independence helps with comfort.

Your perfect partner for financial independence on retirement

Planning for your pension is one of the most important aspects of having a soft life. At a time when one is presumably not actively working, putting money aside for retirement is key.

Pension planning for financial independence is largely dependent on the time one has concerning pension age. The earlier the better, as it cushions the number and amount of contributions to be made for a set target.

Most people think it’s a hustle and a load of work to plan for retirement. To them, ‘money no dey’ to even put some aside. However, finding the right partner to make this pension journey worth your while can be an interesting challenge to take on. That’s where the People’s Pension Trust comes in to help.

The products and services available to workers include the PPT Personal Pension Scheme, which targets the informal sector and is designed to provide additional funds for formal sector workers who want to enhance their retirement benefits.

PPT Occupational Pension Scheme also allows both employers and employees of a registered entity to fulfill their mandatory pension obligations whilst relieving them of trustee duties.

Meanwhile, the PPT Provident Fund Scheme is an optional contributory scheme that provides employees with additional retirement lump sums to complement mandatory pension schemes.
