Christmas Time, mistletoe and…Pensions?!

So it's that time of year again festive carols, the gift of giving, one too many mince pies and losing the end of the sellotape! That's right, Christmas is just around the corner and here at TPAS we've really got involved with the Christmas traditions. The office tree is dressed and our Christmas cards are being sent, but just to be extra festive we donned on our merry thinking caps and created a Christmas challenge for our staff and volunteers.

Our challenge was to rewrite the famous 'Twelve Days of Christmas', to incorporate all things pension and TPAS related.  The entries that we received have been fantastic and highlight the breadth and depth of the pension's world, including verses about SIPP's, Automatic Enrolment and tracing a lost pension.  The entries were difficult to choose between, but we have decided that the best entry received was written by one of our volunteer advisors Mike Cabbett. Here are his verses below:
