There’s a lot of information available regarding your choices at retirement, which can be confusing when trying to decide what to do with your pension savings.

It’s important that you only rely on reputable sources of information to avoid being targeted by scammers.

Pension Wise is the government’s information service for people with defined contribution pension savings, who are approaching retirement. It offers free and impartial guidance and is available online, over the phone or face-to-face.

Depending on how you want to take your pension savings, the administrator might direct you to Pension Wise for expert scams guidance before they can make a payment. Pension Wise has a phone service operated by MoneyHelper, while branches of Citizens Advice provide face-to-face meetings. Only general guidance is provided, not financial advice.
