Citizens Advice is providing Pension Wise appointments at Henley and other bureaux in South Oxfordshire, giving people access to free and impartial pension guidance in their local area.
Following pension reforms on April 6, people approaching retirement have greater freedom over ways they can use their pension savings. People will be able to take a lump sum, take out an annuity or a mixture of the two.
Pension Wise is a new government service designed to help people understand their pension options and empower them to make the right choices for themselves.
Free face to face Pension Wise appointments are available to book now at Henley bureau. The 45-minute appointments will be tailored to individuals, taking into account the value of their pensions and their plans for retirement.
A Pension Wise appointment could help you if:
● You are approaching retirement or are aged 50 or over;
● You have a defined contribution pension.
Guidance appointments are also available on the telephone, provided by the Pensions Advisory Service. Information and general guidance is also obtainable online at www.pensionwise.gov.uk.
