How to take your pension benefits is a very important financial decision and could affect your financial wellbeing for many years to come. You should therefore consider taking Independent Financial Advice before making any decision. The Association of Financial Advisers
will be able to advise of a suitably qualified Independent Financial Adviser in your area.
The choice of an Independent Financial Adviser is yours alone. TPT Retirement Solutions does not recommend Independent Financial Advisers and can accept no responsibility or liability for any advice which they may give. You may be charged for any advice you receive and you should therefore ensure that you understand and are happy with any charges before proceeding.
