In April this year new pension reforms came into effect which gave people over 55 the opportunity to decide what they do with their defined contribution pension pot.

Pension Wise is a new free and impartial government guidance service set up to help people understand their pension options.

Angela Welch, Causeway Citizens Advice Manager told The Coleraine Times: “Good guidance is a crucial step towards a financially stable retirement.

“We have a strong history of helping people across Northern Ireland. “

She added: “We already support people with many of the issues affecting retirement so we’re pleased to be providing pension guidance through the Pension Wise service.”

Pension Wise is designed to help people make the most of new pension freedoms and is targeted at those who are 55 or over, and have a defined contribution pension. 

Causeway Citizens Advice has Pension Wise Guidance Specialists available for face to face appointments - so please avail of this service.

To find out if you are eligible for guidance, or to book a face to face appointment call in to Causeway Citizens Advice or contact them on 02870344817.
