Sometimes redundancy is welcome, especially if you're ready to move on and there's a good financial package on offer. But for many, redundancy is a shock, both emotionally and financially.
Your employer may offer free support for your wellbeing and help you get ready to find another job as part of your redundancy package – so make full use of these if they are available to you.
Your employer may also have an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which offers free advice. If you have a Union, you may also be able to speak to them for help and support through the process.
If these are not available to you, we've put together a list of useful links and resources below to help you.
Your Legal & General pension
Just because your work situation has changed, your pension with us may not have to. There are a number of options available to you depending on your situation.
Supporting your mental wellbeing
Your mental health can suffer for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes this is short term and you work it out eventually. But sometimes it can be longer term or a more serious issue and you need some help to recover.
Although it can be difficult to take that first step, remember that you are not alone and there's lots of free support and help available to you.
We've brought together a list of useful resources that provide free, tailored help to support good mental health.
Both the Money Advice Service and The Pensions Advisory Service are part of the Money and Pensions Service.
