Pension awareness week takes place from 12 to 16 September 2022 and is an opportunity to improve your pension knowledge and explore the valuable ways you can save your money.

Our partners at AVC Wise are back with 2 new webinars this September, starting in pension awareness week, to support your financial health and wellbeing.

You can learn more about your pension and shared cost AVCs, by registering on our shared cost AVC platform.

You can then access calculators, videos and webinars, including the following 2 new topics:

What does your pension statement really mean?

A 45 minute session open to all Local Government Penison Scheme (LGPS) members. 

Key things you need to look out for on your annual benefit statement, including how your shared cost AVC benefit could boost your pension pot.

Over 50? It's your time to avoid retirement regret

A 45 minute session for LGPS members over 50 years old.

Join this webinar to understand the importance of planning for your retirement and what you can do now to support a financially healthy future.

Register on our shared cost AVC platform between 22 August 2022 and 16 September 2022 for the chance to win one of 5 £200 eGift cards (terms and conditions apply). Already have an account? Refer a LGPS colleague to register and ask them to include your email address in the 'referral email' field on the registration page to enter.

Shared cost AVCs are available to active Local Government Pension Scheme members only.

A pension is a long-term investment, the fund value may fluctuate and can go down. Your eventual income may depend upon the size of the fund at retirement, future interest rates and tax legislation.
