Due to the travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Forces Pension Society (FPS) proposes to deliver pension presentations via Zoom webinars.
Following a successful trial earlier this month, we propose to hold a further webinar for FPS members only on Wednesday 29 April starting at 3pm. The webinar will cover Armed Forces Pension Schemes 75 and 15, and provide strategic context to the AFPS current landscape. It will last for approximately one hour.
FPS members wishing to participate in the AFPS 75/15 webinar on 29 April are requested to email the FPS Roadshow Manager, David Roberts, at firstname.lastname@example.org by close of play Friday 24 April, notifying their wish to attend (please also include your FPS membership number in the email). Attendance, up to one hundred participants, will be on a first come first served basis. David will send Zoom webinar invitations to participants on Monday 27 April, which will include a URL, password and meeting ID to access the webinar.
If you do not receive a Zoom webinar invitation on 27 April it will mean that we exceeded one hundred Members wishing to attend the webinar and that, unfortunately, you were not amongst the first one hundred people to apply. David will notify you by email if this is the case. However, we are extremely grateful for your interest in attending and we will notify you of future FPS pension webinars once they are scheduled.
Guidance notes on how to join the webinar on 29 April, including details of a helpline for anybody encountering difficulties joining it, and protocol for the conduct of the webinar, for example how to ask questions, will be available in the Members area of the FPS website from Monday 27 April.
Following the successful webinar trial earlier this month, and in light of the ongoing restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 situation, we are also now offering Armed Forces Pensions webinars to military units and courses.
Once we have finalised the format and procedure for the Armed Forces Pensions webinars, our intention is to make them available and accessible to the wider military community.
Your assistance and support is extremely appreciated.
