    Pensions for Non-Taxpayers. 11th Jul 17 at 12:16 PM
    I'm 48, and will probably not work again.
    Is it worth still opening a private pension?
    I've heard that some still offer 20% tax relief for non-payers.
    If that is the case, can someone recommend a pension plan/company?

    There are too many to recommend one, but you c an look at Cavendish online to look at a few.

    What will you invest in? I would suggest a multi asset fund (read the Vanguard thread) or a global tracker as you want diversification.

    You can put in 2880 per year, which get grossed up to 3600 by tax relief.

    It would seem that you do not have "relevant earnings"

    http://www.pruadviser.co.uk/content/knowledge/technical-centre/tax_relief_members_contributions/

    so would be limited to a net £2880 contribution in the tax year - the provider would claim £720 tax relief.

    You might look at a SIPP.

    For our small SIPPs we find Hargreaves Lansdown very good. They are a bit pricey for large ones or for small ISAs.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I was going to open a H&L Vantage SIPP and fund with £2,880 for the £720 tax relief, but it gives me a huge amount of funds/companies/sectors to invest in.
    I would like a broad spectrum of relatively safe funds. Can someone recommend any to me? I was going to stick to Vanguard, but any recommendation will do.

    Thanks
