Expert Retirement and Pension Advice
When you envision your future, what kind of life do you see during “life after work”? At Hanson Financial Services, we understand the importance of turning those dreams into a reality. Our team of experts can guide you towards achieving your retirement goals, potentially even allowing you to retire early.
Retirement planning is a complex aspect of financial management, and it’s natural to be unsure about your current and future retirement position, especially with ever-changing legislation. That’s why seeking retirement advice is crucial for making the best decisions that will shape your future.
Our clients often express surprise and satisfaction when we review their financial plan and unveil options they never thought possible. It’s possible that you can retire earlier than you imagined, or there may be investment opportunities or pension transfers that could significantly boost your pension pot in the future. Our team can provide the insight and analysis you need to make informed decisions that benefit you, your family, and your future.
Our Expertise: Retirement and Pension Advice
Understanding your retirement options and retirement income is vital for determining your retirement timeline. We can assist you in navigating the complexities of various pension schemes, including when you can claim your state pension.
If you have accumulated pension pots from multiple jobs over the years, we can evaluate them and provide recommendations on how they can best serve you in retirement. This may involve transfers, consolidation, or other strategies. Exploring your pension options will help ensure a comfortable retirement and potentially even bring your retirement date closer.

Frequently Asked Questions
This depends entirely on what kind of lifestyle you want to live and what pensions, savings and investments you currently have. Speaking to a financial advisor can help you work out where you are in relation to the kind of income you will want for your retirement, and how to get there.
Speaking to a financial advisor before you retire will help you establish what kind of income you will have, and will include both defined benefit and defined contribution pensions, as well as advice on how you can maximise these during your retirement to maintain the lifestyle you want.
After an initial consultation, we will check state and private pensions to see what kind of income you will receive from these. We will also establish if you are in a position to receive benefits, help you track down lost pensions and give you advice on any personal pensions you may have.
Independent financial advisors (IFAs) who specialise in pensions, like here at Hanson Financial Services, are often the best choice for you to receive pension advice. Advice from IFAs will be tailored to your circumstances. All advice given by financial advisors here at Hanson Financial Services is explained to you without jargon, so you understand what the consequences will be for you and your future.
The main benefit of getting advice is to show you what possibilities are available for your circumstances. You may find that by getting regulated advice there are more options available to you than you had expected, which will leave you open to having a higher retirement income, securing you the lifestyle you want.
Other benefits include getting a plan to ensure all your goals and needs are met, both in the short and long term, as well as getting advice on the best decisions for choices that are difficult and complicated.
If you are asking yourself questions about what your retirement income will be, or whether you should consolidate your pension pots, getting advice can help with making these decisions.
Guidance provides you with information about what options are available to you but doesn’t make recommendations about what the best option for you is. This means that when you are offered free, impartial guidance, it is not the same as receiving advice from a pensions advisor as it will not tell you how you should proceed in order to make the most of what you currently have. If you want guidance rather than advice, we can offer that, or you can contact a charity like Pension Wise.
Advice is tailored to you and your circumstances and often comes with a plan that is created to meet your goals and needs, including a range of products that will help you. Another thing to consider is that advice is regulated, while guidance is not, so you will not receive any support from the Financial Conduct Authority if you have problems.
I found Sanjay particularly helpful and extremely patient: my options were spelled out in plain, jargon free English. Sanjay was not the first pensions advisor I had spoken to but he was the most straight forward and down to earth.
If anyone is looking for a professional who is both knowledgeable and trustworthy then Sanjay fits that perfectly. Everything was made simple and fully explained with nothing being too much effort. Sanjay sorted not only all my previous pensions but also those of my wife. Couldn’t be happier
Whereas a number of other local advisors I contacted were not really interested in my particular circumstances as they would not be handling the actual transfer, Sanjay was willing to help from the start. Once engaged, Sanjay's questions made me really think about my financial future and other options, and the final report was far more thorough and detailed than I had expected. At the start this was a process I had to go through, whereas by the time I received the final report, it was a process that I was glad I had gone through and chosen Sanjay to guide me through it.
