Clear advice on pension options at Haverhill CAB
Haverhill Citizens Advice is encouraging local people over 50, with a defined contribution pension, to use its new guidance sessions and learn about their pension options.
Pension Wise guiders will explain the new pension freedoms introduced in April and how people can access guidance.
People over 55 now have the option to access their pension pot and take a lump sum, buy an annuity or a mixture of both.
Pension Wise is a free government service that helps people approaching retirement to go through their options so they can make informed decisions about their pension pot.
Geoffrey Pickess, guidance specialist at Haverhill CAB said: “The world of pensions can be confusing.
“People can be put off by the numbers, the terminology, and the calculations involved.
“Pension Wise is a free service which is here to help people make sense of their options.
“We offer face to face appointments in Haverhill which are tailored to each individual, depending on their wants and needs for retirement.
“We’re looking forward to meeting people and helping prepare them for retirement.”
To book a Pension Wise appointment, you can visit the bureau at Haverhill House in Lower Downs Slade or call 0300 330 1001.
