Before you start paying towards your pension each month, you want to know how it could benefit you
The Mercer Master Trust (MMT) is a defined contribution scheme. This is a pension scheme where you and your employer pay into an individual account, which is then invested.
In the MMT, this means that:
You pay 5% of your salary or more, and IMI gives you a boost by matching what you choose to pay up to 6%.
Use the on track calculator to see the difference paying more could make to the size of your account.
You choose how to invest the money with the aim of growing your account over the long term. There is a default investment option if you do not want to choose your own investments, or you can choose your own investments if you are comfortable doing so.

You can choose what you do with your savings when you retire. This could mean taking it as cash, buying an annuity, or taking it through drawdown.
