Retirement Planning

We’re all living longer so there’s more of life to enjoy, but this means we should start to plan for retirement earlier. The retirement landscape is constantly changing, so it’s important you understand current and planned changes and what they mean for you as you move towards retirement.

There is going to come a time when you can’t work anymore and therefore can’t earn a regular income. That may seem a long way off but the sooner you start saving for that future, the sooner you can ensure it’s a happy and enjoyable one.

Long term care

The UK population is getting older – and quickly. According to AGE UK between 2005/06 and 2015/16 the total number of people aged 65 or over in England increased by close to 21 per cent, representing nearly 1.7 million extra people.

Moreover, the greatest growth in percentage terms has been amongst those aged 85 and over this age group increased by 31.3 per cent (or more than 300,000 people) over the period.

All this means there are more people lining up to use a service that can be expensive, depending on your individual circumstances. Wren Sterling has later life financial planning experts who can steer you and your family through long term care.
