Planning Your Retirement Workshop


The 'Planning Your Retirement Workshop' is aimed at members who are aged 50 and over who have a keen interest in how they can plan towards their retirement and gather information they may need to prepare for retirement.

The workshops are approximately two and a half hours long and officers can deliver one or two sessions in a day to a minimum of 10 attendees and a maximum of 20 per session.

The workshop covers -

  • How LGPS benefits are calculated (via an interactive session).
  • An overview of retirement options.
  • Starting and completing the retirement process.
  • State pension information.
  • Planning your retirement.
  • Taxation.

Throughout the session there will be an opportunity for the attendees to ask any pension questions to our friendly and experienced Member Relationship Officers who are always happy to help.

(Please note that fund representatives can only give information, therefore, if members require financial advice they should seek the services of an independent financial advisor).

Feedback we have received from members who have attended previous workshops:

  • "Nothing to improve. Interactive and involvement".

  • "Having worksheets & talking it through with advisors was very useful. Very well explained & advisors willing to assist".

  • "I can plan better and decide to retire with more information".


Remember our services are FREE OF CHARGE to employers of the West Midlands Pensions Fund.
