With the pension scheme freedoms having been around for a year now, it is important that both employers and employees have developed a good understanding.

Freedom and choice in pensions has created a set of challenges for those with defined contribution (DC) schemes, especially those approaching retirement. Many employers are still facing challenges because of the impact pension freedoms is having. Greg Thorley, head of business development for WEALTH at work, will be discussing how to tackle these issues and explaining the changes further.

He will be speaking about the at-retirement phase, but also the need to educate and engage throughout employees’ working lives, to ensure that individuals are aware of what choices they need to make.

Thorley will also discuss the financial education solution, the need for the right guidance and support for employees and whether employers are responsible for it.
