Pension Advice at Retirement

Are you thinking about retirement? Do you need help accessing or deciding about your Tax Free Cash options?

Are you confused by your options at retirement? Do you buy an annuity? Is drawdown my best options? What are my options for tax-free cash?

Let us try and help you answer your retirement questions and take your pension paperwork and turn into your retirement goals.

Typical clients who come to us for pension & retirement advice, usually have multiple pension schemes that they’ve built over the past 40 years and their retirement looks like a pile of meaningless paper. The majority of our clients cannot make any sense of the statements to establish what they have, let alone trying to sort out the best income options and the available tax-free cash amounts.

We can help you. To help us to get to know each other and build up some trust we offer a 30 minute consultation at our cost. We can look at you schemes, outline your options and provide you with a workable plan to implement your retirement.

Call now 0121 421 7144 or email: richard@pfep.co.uk to arrange a first meeting at our cost. We are opposite the Royal Oak pub on Manor Lane B62 8PU, we have free on-site parking and coffee and biscuits.

You may think you don’t need a Lasting Power of Attorney? Did you know?

  • If you’re  admitted to hospital, your next of kin (husband, wife, son or daughter) always get the final say about your treatment, if you are unable to because you’re unable to make decisions: For example you’re in a coma or have dementia.
  • Joint assets like bank accounts, investments or property held jointly, if one person loses the ability to make decisions for
    themselves the other can legally make decisions for them.
  • You need a solicitor in order to make a Lasting Power of Attorney.
  • When you register a Lasting Power of Attorney the person you nominate always has control immediately and you lose control.

All the above are in fact, incorrect. You would need a lasting power of attorney to make the decisions described above.
