Financial guidance at-retirement

This service is available for employees and pension scheme members who are deciding how to best access their workplace pensions and retirement savings – whether they are defined benefit, defined contribution or a mix of both.

Using a structured set of questions and prompts, our telephone based guidance team will discuss scheme specific options and the relationship to other lifetime savings with employees and members, and if further support is required they will signpost to Pension Wise or regulated financial advice. A written report is created for employees/members and employers/Trustees will receive confirmation to record that a retirement guidance session took place. This service meets the Pension Regulator’s and FCA’s requirements to provide risk warnings for employees and scheme members.
