Retirement Planning

As most company human resources, pensions or benefits officers will know from experience retiring employees need lots of information when they have decided to retire, whether they are retiring early, at state pension age, if they have continued working on longer or if they are retiring following redundancy or ill health.

retirement planning

The need for help planning this vital life step is equally important for all employees whether they work in the board room or on the shop floor. It also applies to small businesses as well as large employers.

The Choice Retirement Planner New Choices is a comprehensive “bible” of retirement. In loose leaf format in a sturdy binder it draws on our 40 years of experience to produce easy-to-read information and help on:

  • Finance
  • Tax
  • Investments
  • Benefits
  • New opportunities and challenges
  • Health care
  • Your Home
  • Your rights
  • Voluntary work
  • Leisure…and much more.

The binder format means we can keep it up to date. If there is a major change (for example The Budget) we can simply update and replace individual pages. We also provide a free annual budget update for those who already have a planner. Many companies provide employees with a planner plus a subscription to Choice magazine.

It is an extremely cost effective method of delivering retirement planning that can be a stand-alone method or combined with a company seminar or information package.

We are happy to provide all the administration for delivery as part of the package. And we can supply any number of planners. If you order 50 or more we can work with you to create a unique cover design in your company’s own style and colours.

However, you probably won’t need all of these at once. Subject to initial invoicing of the total order we will store them and deliver only when you require them. That way any updates will be applied to your planners so they will always be the latest version when supplied.

The benefits to your company are straightforward:

  • Independent information from a company with more than 40 years experience in retirement. Your employees won’t be getting a seminar from a financial services supplier.
  • It will save you admin and will clear up many issues that employees might otherwise need to query with company human resources or benefits staff.
  • It will save you admin time and cost.
  • It is flexible and can be used in many ways.
  • It is suitable for all grades and types of employee.
  • It is very cost effective, from as little as £25 per employee.
