Less than 2 weeks until the pension reforms take place – are you prepared?

The countdown to the 6th April has now begun. In less than two weeks time, those aged 55 and over will gain increased control over how they access and spend their retirement savings.

The current pension system will be replaced with a series of new measures:

The shake-up the pension industry will provide more freedom for those in or facing retirement. However, the Financial Conduct Authority has warned that up to 40% of savers who cash in their pensions will be 'irreversibly worse off'.
The warning follows recent concerns that some savers are still unable to book an appointment with the government's pension guidance service, Pension Wise, despite only a matter of days to go before the reforms.

As mentioned previously, Pension Wise will only provide guidance and not tailored advice. The significant changes due to take place reinforce the importance of seeking advice from a Financial Adviser before making any final decisions that could affect your retirement.
