Teachers Assurance to run 150 complimentary retirement planning seminars in 2015
Teachers Assurance, provider of savings, investments and insurance, has organised their largest programme of financial planning retirement seminars to date, with over 150 complimentary events taking place across England and Wales in 2015.
Part of the organisation’s Financial Education Programme, the seminars provide teachers with the relevant facts they need to plan for a comfortable retirement. The sessions, which began in January, are aimed at teachers approaching retirement, within six months of retiring or teachers taking their first steps into retirement. A dedicated team of Business Development Officers working for Teachers Assurance travel the country to provide this no-charge service during both term-time and school holidays.
Each retirement planning seminar is led by the needs of the teachers who attend and covers subjects that are appropriate to where they are in their careers. Teachers are also guided though the Teachers’ Pension Scheme reforms, which take effect from 1st April, so they can leave the seminar with knowledge of the changes taking place and the options available to them. As a result, teachers can make their own decisions about their financial futures with peace of mind and confidence.
Laura Bentham, Events Team Leader at Teachers Assurance, comments on the company’s extensive 2015 seminar programme: “Our experience, gained over 137 years of providing financial planning support to the teaching profession, tells us that many teachers have a lot of questions as they near retirement. Our aim is to demystify teachers’ pension arrangements and the upcoming pension scheme reforms have made this more vital than ever. We have had huge interest from teachers wanting to attend this year’s programme of events and have had to arrange additional seminars to cope with the demand.”
