Planning for the future; options for your retirement, pension, well-being and employment - Ashford

20/09/2019 09:30 - 14:00
This course will provide you with tools to plan your future, to put you in control of the next phase of your life. In order to plan your future you need to understand the options available to you, and these can be more extensive than you think. The course will explore these options which can range from retiring and taking your pension as soon as possible, to changing your current working arrangements for more free time, and many other options in-between.

The training will also address the financial aspects of planning your future; clearly your financial position will impact on what choices you can make, and when you can make them - the way your pension works and how much this is worth, will be a key component of this.

Your general well-being will also influence your future choices. If you remain well, you can make choices about your future from a position of strength.  The course will address this issue and provide practical tips to facilitate your well-being.

This is a fantastic course. It gave me the opportunity to consider many aspects of general financial planning and options for future retirement. When I mentioned to colleagues that I had booked on it, many were surprised as they thought it was just aimed at those who wanted to retire soon. I attended with a colleague and we both felt this is something to be considered 5 to 10 years before your likely retirement. This gives time to organise finances, consider changing working patterns, or even just to check that your pension records are up to date. I consider that I am quite knowledgeable about finances but following the course, I took up the offer of a free financial consultation. The result of this is that I have since saved almost £200 per month in outgoings and am treating myself to a new car!
