In the words of our members…

Made me realise how important it is to get things arranged.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

I realised the necessity of sorting my pension out and decoding how I am going to do this.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

Really informative.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

It made me feel more aware of what I am doing rather than just relying on someone doing it for me.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

Presentation was very thorough and outlined all the options available.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

I didn't really fully understand pensions and how they worked prior to this and now I feel assured and confident to make a decision to save for my future.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

Extremely useful presentation. The Creative representative explained the scheme in terms understandable by everyone.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

It has helped me to feel in control of my pension.

Employee and Pension Scheme Member

It helped explain our options very simply so much easier to understand rather than the usual jargon.
