An estimated five million people work for themselves but saving for a pension may not be a priority. Our video explains how self-employed workers can secure their financial futures.

Around one in seven of the UK workforce is self-employed, driven by the gig economy, silver entrepreneurs and those tainted by the financial crisis.

However, research suggests many are shunning pension contributions, meaning a comfortable retirement may not become reality.

In our video, Maike Currie from Fidelity International discusses with YourMoney.com’s Paloma Kubiak why it’s essential for the self-employed to take charge of their pensions, how SIPPs work and what you need to know regarding tax relief and self-assessment tax returns.
