Plan your journey


3.5 hours or 2 hours by webinar.



This session is designed for those members who are within 10 years of retirement and who want to understand more about their pension, their options and the retirement process itself.

Before the session you’ll be sent the material that will be covered in the session, a pension jargon buster, a 10 point check list and follow up exercises to help you prepare for your retirement.

During the session we’ll be looking at:

  • How your pension is calculated
  • Your lump sum options
  • Your retirement options – including early retirement and partial retirement
  • Benefits for your family
  • How to ensure your wellbeing in retirement
  • Preparing for a change in your lifestyle

Which means you’ll leave with an understanding of:

  • The options available to you on retirement
  • The retirement process and its timescales
  • How to take control of your future and the steps you need to take to get there

And be able to:

  • Effectively plan for the retirement you’d like to have
