Event Description

Staff who are nearing retirement within the next 1 – 3 years

We are delighted to welcome back Alex Dockar, financial adviser and Associate Partner of St. James's Place Wealth Management to deliver bespoke training for the sector. For over a decade, Alex has successfully delivered financial planning sessions to colleagues and feedback is consistently very high. This session we have worked with Alex to create on-line provision which takes a blended learning approach. The face-to-face sessions will take place over the Zoom for Education platform with break-out room functionality. Participants will be issued with a pre-session one task, and “homework” in between the two sessions; these tasks have been devised to facilitate a deep understanding of the content. In addition, it is requested that all delegates source a STSS Pension forecast in advance.

(Delegates registering will automatically be enrolled on session two)

An outline of the face-to-face sessions is given below:

Session One – Can I afford to Retire? – Cashflow Management (10 June)

· Cashflow case study

· Reviewing monthly expenditure

· Reviewing STSS benefits

· Tax and Inflation

· State Pension

 Session Two - Optimum Choice (15 June) 

· Tax Free Cash & Pension – thoughts on the optimum choice

· Capital management (incorporating debt management/Investment Risk/Portfolio Planning)

· Legal issues at Retirement

· Timeline – the way ahead

Colleagues are respectfully asked to register by Thursday 3rd June; the pre-session one task will be issued on Friday 4th June, with the joining instructions for the first fact-to-face session. 

**NB This seminar is geared for staff who are nearing retirement within the next 1 – 3 years.**
