Understanding retirement income options in uncertain times

Those approaching or at retirement are facing uncertain times. The pressure that Covid-19 has had on household income has led to some accessing their pensions early or having to delay retirement. Whilst others are facing retirement earlier than expected because of redundancy.

In October contingent charging on defined benefit transfers was banned and going forward members will have the option of non-advised guidance, abridged advice, and full advice. Amidst this, pension scams are rife with fraudsters seeing such turbulent times as an opportunity.
