Planning a Positive Retirement

This two hour webinar on MS Teams is for those considering retirement within the next 5 years, whether normal, early, flexible or ill health related.

Forward planning is advisable when making any major change in life and retirement is no exception. Make sure your plans are realistic and based on knowledge not myth - Join colleagues and a retirement specialist at a 'Planning for a positive retirement' webinar to consider a range of issues related to retirement and steps you may need to take before you get there.

This webinar is delivered by Affinity Connect a national training organisation which specialises in providing financial pre-retirement guidance and support. There is a short discussion by the Citizens Advice Bureau on volunteering roles.
The aim of this event is to help you apply a positive attitude and realistic approach to a healthy and financially secure retirement.
If you apply what you have learnt on this workshop you will be able to manage the following:

  • Changes in your lifestyle and options available to build a new way of life
  • Practical “doable” actions to protect your health in retirement
  • Choices you need to make about your occupational pension before you leave
  • Where you can expect income from, and how it is taxed differently in retirement
  • What banks, building societies and a range of investment assets can do for you
  • Why increased life expectancy increases the dangers of inflation, and how to combat it
  • How to minimise investment risk and guaranteed investments
  • How to ensure your estate is passed to your intended beneficiaries
