    How does the pension thing work?
    If you get a grand a year pension, do you get that till u die..?
    so do they calculate the value by ,
    U retire at 60 and they think u wil live to 80, so that 20 years pension, so your pensions worth 20 k
    google it ,, nothing ,just adverts.

    Yes, and for DB pensions the 1K is usually increased completely or partially with inflation.

    That at a simplistic level is the starting point. The other key factor is that the DB pension scheme will be investing the money that it intends to use in the future to pay the pension. When interest rates are very low, like now, the pension scheme needs to set aside more money. Which is why transfer values are currently unusually high.

    Alternatively for a DC pension you start off with a lump sum in a pension and can do various things with it, including buying a payment every year. It's the value of the pot that is defined and the amount of income you can get from it is the outcome.
