Treasury announces new role for The Pensions Advisory Service
On todays announcement by the Treasury, Michelle Cracknell, Chief Executive of the Pensions Advisory Service, said:
"The Pensions Advisory Service welcomes the announcement today by The Treasury. We have been delighted to have had the opportunity to work with the Treasury, DWP and our colleagues at The Money Advice Service on the development of this very important initiative. We look forward to using the expertise that we (The Pensions Advisory Service) have gathered over the last thirty years to make this policy a reality that really benefits those coming up to retirement. Our experience from our helpline shows how essential good information and guidance is to helping people think through the choices they need to make for retirement but we know that many people put off thinking about retirement and struggle to know how to start. Having a personalised conversation with someone who understands the issues affecting people as they come close to retirement can be life changing. We are passionate about helping people on what we see as an important part of the journey to a comfortable retirement".
