Planning for a positive retirement workshop

Human ResourcesAre you sure your retirement plans are realistic?

‘I thought I had sorted my retirement plans, now I realise I need to rethink them.’

‘It was really helpful to discuss things with others in the same position.’

‘It gave me a different perspective and good ideas.’

Forward planning is advisable when making any major change and retirement is no exception. The University is pleased to announce a new initiative to support and guide those who are considering what retirement might mean for them. This service will be provided through workshops which are designed to raise your awareness of the key issues you will need to consider, and decisions you will need to make, as you begin to approach this new stage in your life. They are suitable for those who think they might like to retire within approximately the next couple of years, but are just as valuable, for those who are not sure yet what age they wish to retire, as well as those who have a definite retirement age in mind.

This workshop will help you to understand more clearly the changes you will face in both your lifestyle and your finances, and the most appropriate ways to deal with them; and hopefully dispel some of the myths. You will consider a wide range of retirement-related matters including your occupational and state pension entitlements, personal taxation, estate planning and the decisions you will need to make in respect of how you wish to draw your pension benefits.

Why not join colleagues and a Retirement Specialist to find out what retirement is really about and if your plans are appropriate. To book a place please contact Pensions on pensionenquiries@port.ac.uk. Partners are encouraged and welcome to attend.
