At Legal & General, we understand that retirement offers the opportunity and freedom to enjoy life and go on some adventures.
We believe that no two retirements are the same which is why we’ve found some retirees who are having the time of their lives in lots of different ways. In our new series you can listen to their stories.
Usually found helping the nation save money on The Martin Lewis Money Show, our host Angellica Bell will be chatting to them about how they’ve been enjoying their retirement, how they prepared financially and what their expectations of retirement were.
Angellica will also be joined by some expert guests, who will share their tips on things to think about when you’re planning your retirement adventures.
Covering everything from how to make the most of every opportunity to the challenges of diversity in later life, listen to Rewirement for free on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts or click the button below.

So what do you do?
For many, retirement doesn’t mean retiring the skills you’ve gained over the years. In this episode Angellica Bell chats to Nigel and Rosetta about how they’re living life to the full and giving back to their communities – in the UK and abroad. They’ll be joined by Andrew Kail, CEO of Retail Retirement at
Legal & General, and Helen Cathcart,
co-founder of Bolder.
The way we retire today has changed – and so has the way we plan for it. Our experts will be sharing their advice on how you can fund your retirement dreams, take on new challenges and make the most of every opportunity.

Episode three: Travel adventures in retirement
Travel adventures in retirement
Many of us put off the trip of a lifetime because life gets in the way – work deadlines, family commitments or simply never getting round to booking those flights. Retirement often provides more time and the freedom to travel, which is why it’s on so many people’s agenda when they stop working. We share the stories of people who are having the time of their lives as they explore the world in their retirement.Learn more about how to plan for travel in later life, and read inspiring stories from globetrotting retirees, by visiting our Travel Adventures in Retirement page.
