Ongoing economic uncertainty means that it’s still not uncommon to read a story about large or high profile businesses making staff redundant. The flow-on effects from tough economic times in the past are still being felt in many sectors of the economy. Redundancy remains an all-too-common possibility for employees of both large and small businesses.
We often find that it’s only as people near retirement that they really start thinking about their finances – especially when they start looking at everything that retirement offers, like making time for a hobby, more travel, volunteering projects or spending time with family.
If you are considering retiring or reducing your working hours in 2016 but are concerned about having enough money to retire on, it’s not too late to seek some professional advice to give you peace of mind.
