The best place for all your pensions gossip
When attending a NEST Insight conference this week, the thorny issue of getting ready for April 6th reared its head again. More than a few audience members were worried about whether the guidance guarantee would be in place in time for the beginning of the new freedoms. Our pensions minister, however, seemed relaxed, arguing that not everyone will be hanging by their phones waiting for the strike of midnight to retire and liberate their cash. Those who are, however, will most likely be disappointed, as the minister also pointed out that the 6th April is a bank holiday this year. On the upside we’ve all got an extra 24 hours to get ready. Phew.
