Defined Contribution Occupational Pension


Defined contribution occupational pension.

Segment has put in place an Occupational Pension Plan with Aviva Life & Pensions.

The company will contribute up to 5% of your base annual salary on a matching basis which means that employees contributing 5% to their pension plan will receive a matching employer contribution to that level. Similarly if you wish to contribute (1%, 2%,3%, 4%) the company will match each level.

Segment provides a salary deduction facility for you to make contributions to this pension scheme. You can receive tax relief on your contributions which can be up to 40% of your gross annual salary (subject to a salary cap of €115K per anum) based on the below age brackets;

50-54                        30% of salary

55-59                        35% of salary

You control the investment strategy. In addition to the Default Lifestyle Strategy there is a broad selection of funds to choose from including Managed, Equity, Bonds, Property and Cash Funds.

At retirement age you can avail of a 25% Tax Free Lump Sum of the total funds accumulated and use the balance to either purchase an Annuity Contract (which will provide a guaranteed level of income for life) or transfer the balance into an Approved Retirement Fund (ARF) providing continued tax free investment growth with taxable fund withdrawals.
