My Retirement Options is a free service that provides access to professional, independent financial advice for all UK retirees. We work with a network of carefully selected finance professionals, all of whom are fully accredited and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to offer the highest level of personally tailored retirement advice.
The importance of professional advice
At My Retirement Options we believe that due to the complexity of the retirement market, and the potential risks involved with the various income routes available to you, it is essential that all retirees seek professional, personally tailored advice before making a decision.
The UK government has pledged to offer free guidance to all retirees seeking to turn their private pension into an income, but this guidance will be very general and cannot take into account your personal circumstances. You will have the options explained to you, but no specific recommendations will be made, no long term support will be offered and you will have no recourse if you make a decision that you later come to regret.
When you use My Retirement Options, we’ll connect you to an independent financial advisor in your area. These advisors are specially trained and fully qualified to offer personally tailored, impartial guidance on how to get the best retirement income from your private pension savings. They’ll listen carefully to your circumstances, answer any questions you might have and work with you to create a plan of action.
Connecting to an IFA through our website is completely free, with no hidden costs or charges. All of the advisors on our network offer free first advice – an initial consultation in which you can find out more about how they could help you. This consultation can take place face-to-face or over the phone, and there’s no obligation to buy any product or service. If you decide to book a follow-up appointment based on your initial consultation, any associated costs will be clearly laid out at the start, allowing you to come to an informed decision.
