It can be daunting taking the first steps, but we’re here to help. Spending some time looking at how much money you might need, and how you could fund the lifestyle you want in retirement, will be time well spent.
Spend time learning
We’ve developed a free, short course with the Open University, available on OpenLearn. It breaks down the steps you should take to understand how much you might need and your options for providing an income when you retire. The course is easy to use with a mix of learning tools. It should take about 3 hours to complete but you can save your progress and come back to it when it suits you.
We've teamed up with Shirley Ballas, head judge on Strictly Come Dancing, who's embracing life as she gets older. In these podcasts Shirley chats to a number of people about what they're looking forward to in retirement. She’ll be working with experts to find out how to make your money go further, and enjoy your retirement.
