Your pensions and retirement questions answered: Legal & General Google Hangout

We all want to enjoy a worry-free comfortable retirement.

That means we have to plan ahead to make sure we don’t have to miss out on lifelong goals – whether these be swimming with dolphins, owning a nice car or paying for children’s education. However, it probably won’t surprise you to know that people often don’t find it easy to plan for their retirement.

In fact, research from Legal & General’s shows that of all the personal finance topics, the three that people find hardest to understand are annuities, access to personal pension plans and auto-enrolment: all are related to retirement! What’s more, the government is introducing a number of pension changes on April 6th.

This is why I’ve decided to take part in an exciting Google Hangout – (a video discussion you can watch on youtube ) with Legal & General which aims to answer people’s questions about pensions and retirement.

So where do you fit in?

If you have any burning questions around retirement planning now’s the time to ask.

Perhaps you’ve recently retired and what to know your options once the pension changes come into effect? Maybe you’ve just changed job and want to know how your pension is transferred? Do you want to know about other sources of income aside from pensions savings?

Whatever your questions, just comment here on the post, or  our Facebook page  or tweet me @Fab_after_Fifty with the hashtag #MoneyHangout to submit your question.

An expert panel including Michelle Cracknell, CEO of The Pensions Advisory Service @mac290964; IFA James Dean @JamesDean_uk and Personal Finance Journalist Jasmine Birtles @Jasmine will be answering people’s questions live during the Google Hangout on 27th March at 10.00am. You can sign up to watch it on Google+ or watch it live right here:


This is part of a series of Google Hangouts that Legal & General is hosting, getting people to think about their personal finances and share any concerns they may have. The first in the series looking at family finances. You can see highlights from this Hangout here:
