Retirement course

Retirement is an exciting time, but it also represents a big lifestyle change which can sometimes seem a bit daunting.

The Pensions Department regularly arranges two-day retirement courses to help you as you prepare for your retirement. The course includes:

  • life after work
  • various hobbies and activities in the local area
  • presentations from the Pensions Team
  • a talk from a financial adviser
  • a talk from a solicitor who specialises in Wills
  • State Pension information
  • tax issues and allowances
  • free travel passes – within Somerset and beyond
  • other benefits – TV licence, winter fuel payments, etc.
  • other pension issues – how to trace a lost pension
