It’s Pension Awareness Week 2022!

Our rescheduled campaign begins today to align with the National Pension Awareness Week, 31 October – 4 November.

Beginning back in 2014 by the team at Pension Geeks, the annual Pension Awareness Day aims to highlight the importance of pension saving. Over one week, the pensions industry* comes together to provide free events, webinars and pension clinics to help the public and employers understand pensions and how to achieve the retirement they want.

We have been busy making our own preparations for a week of roadshow events, webinars, live sessions, daily Armed Forces pension tips & facts, and some myth busting!

Here’s our programme:
