RetirementMatters Training Course: Approaching Retirement


Choosing when to retire is a complex decision and the recent rise in the cost of living will certainly be a factor, especially when calculating how much income will be needed to fund a desired lifestyle. It’s important to understand issues such as this so retirement planning decisions can be made on a well-informed basis.

With this in mind the PMI, supported by WEALTH at work, a leading financial wellbeing and retirement specialist, are running ‘Approaching Retirement’ courses on Thursday 6th October. These courses are open to all PMI members as well as affiliated employees and pension scheme members.

His top tips for people approaching retirement are –

  • Think about what you will be doing. There will be a lot of time to do many things we couldn’t do while we were working.
  • Understand all your income and capital options. Enable your plans to be as tax-efficient as possible.
  • Make informed decisions. Get impartial information and consider your own personal circumstances, not those of others.
