The Pensions Section in conjunction with Retirement Life and Planning Services runs a number of seminars each year relating to planning for retirement:
- Mid Career (Advanced) Planning for Retirement Seminar
- Retirement Planning Seminars
The Mid Career (Advanced) Planning for Retirement Seminar is a one day course held each December. This course is specifically aimed towards staff in their early 40s to late 50 but all are welcome to attend. Further information on this course is outlined in the Staff Training and Development Programme of Courses and places on this course can be booked by contacting the Staff Training and Development Section.
The Retirement Planning Seminar is a two day course. All staff who are due to retire in a given year are invited to attend along with their partners.
