Retirement planning

As a customer of Lloyd & Whyte Heritage, you can access Independent Financial Advice on pensions and retirement planning through our sister company Lloyd & Whyte (Financial Services) Ltd.

With their expert team, they can guide you through recent changes to pension rules. The changes mean that as a customer over the age of 55, you can now enjoy complete freedom and control over your pension fund.

Flexible pensions – what you need to know

Although the new rules bring you more choice, it’s important to understand there are a number of decisions that you’ll need to make to enable you to meet your financial objectives.

Seek advice to maximise your opportunities

It may be tempting to dive straight into your pension pot but planning is key to avoiding potential pension pitfalls, or worst case scenario, running out of money. Seeking advice will be crucial to maximising the opportunity that the new rules offer you.
