Helping you make the most of
your money

Our advisers, backed by the extensive knowledge and experience of Lighthouse Group, one of the best-respected financial advice companies in the UK, are able to provide you with advice on all areas of financial planning, including:

  • insurance and protection: so you and your family don’t suffer financially should the worst happen
  • pensions and retirement: taking advantage of the options available to you to enjoy a comfortable retirement
  • savings and investments: putting your spare cash to good use to build and conserve wealth tax-efficiently
  • mortgages and borrowings: many people pay more than they need to. Are you one of them?

Specialist advice on pensions and retirement planning

As you would expect from Unite’s preferred provider of financial advice, we understand how pension schemes work, whether public sector or private, and can explain what provision you already have and how you could supplement this.

  • Will your pension scheme provide you with adequate income in retirement?
  • Have you considered other tax-efficient ways of boosting your income in retirement?
  • Do you have old pension funds, such as AVCs, FSAVCs or private pensions? If so, are they on track to provide the pension you expect?
  • Can you afford to retire early? What impact would this have on your pension in later life?
  • Should you take a tax-free lump sum?
  • Do you need fixed or variable income in retirement?
