Understanding Final Salary Pensions

What is a Final Salary Pension?

Final salary pension (FSP) schemes were designed to give you a regular, reliable income in your retirement that reflected your salary at retirement. Your employer would make a generous contribution while your contribution may have been more modest. In the event of your death your spouse would receive a portion of your pension for the remainder of their life.

When you started your career an FSP, accompanying a ‘job for life’, would have been an excellent employee benefit but does it hold the same value today or is it a myth?
