Media comment: Budget 2015

Wednesday 8 July 2015

In response to the 2015 budget, Caroline Rookes, Chief Executive for the Money Advice Service comments: “With recent changes to the way people can access their pensions, consumers need a variety of information to help them make decisions that will enable them to maintain their ideal lifestyle in retirement and ensure that their money lasts. It is great news that the Pension Wise service has been extended to everyone over 50 as this will help people to plan ahead earlier in the run up to retirement.”
