Enhancing the income you receive in retirement
Most people do not realise that they could receive more income from their pension annuity if any aspect of their health or lifestyle could reduce their life expectancy.
And you don't need to have a major health complication in order to qualify for an enhanced annuity rate. Indeed, even some minor lifestyle factors such as being a smoker, drinking regularly or being overweight can lead to an increase in the amount of income you can receive each year from your annuity.
