On Friday 15 May our CEO, Romi, took part in a live pensions Q&A, hosted by Money to the Masses director Damien Fahy. Money to the Masses is one of the UK’s leading independent personal finance websites, empowering consumers to take control of their finances. Romi answered reader questions about consolidating your pensions, the options you have when drawing down your pension, and how to make the most of the Money Purchase Annual Allowance (MPAA).
Here are some of the key topics Romi covered:
What the current financial climate means for pension savings and whether periods of economic uncertainty are a good time to consolidate old pensions.
Why there’s been such a huge increase in the number of online scams as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and the steps savers can take to protect themselves from pension scams.
The different options you have when accessing your pension from the age of 55, how to reduce risk and why it’s important to think about your retirement goals long before drawing down.
