Advice on pensions and retirement planning
We are experts at independent pension advice, proven by our history of running Retirement Workshops for many major North West employers. These include Universities, Local Authorities, Teachers Authorities, Police Forces, as well as companies in the private sector. Oil and Chemical Companies, and luxury Car Manufacturers.
Amongst the many ways of taking pension funds are:
Annuities and Enhanced Annuities – an annuity is a guaranteed income for life. Still today a very valuable certainty to have. Enhanced annuities give higher incomes if your health is not too good or you smoke. You should always check this option.
Drawdown – drawdown has now become more common since George Osborne introduced greater pension freedoms. Varying amounts of capital can be taken from your pension pot. It depends on your wishes.
Phased Retirement – occurs where you phase in portions of your pension fund over several years. This may be useful where your full retirement is staggered.
