Online learning: Planning for retirement

Retirement planningRegardless of our age, we all face moments in life that challenge us. Have you ever faced a major turning point in your life? Have you ever had to cope with redundancy? Found yourself facing career changes or the prospect of being forced into retirement?

If you need help in working your way through, Olderiswiser has partnered with Life Academy to help you identify the path that suits your situation best!

Life Academy provides courses in retirement, later careers, and even an MSc in Life & Retirement Planning, validated by the University of Kingston. These are the only courses of their kind in the UK, and cost only £500 a module. We also provide an online course on how best to retire and our instructors are all graduates of our courses.

If you are unsure what these challenges mean to you and your family, watch our free taster webcast - it provides a 'no jargon' assessment of what challenges lie ahead and can help you to identify your key areas of concern.

Retirement strategies

We also publish in-depth guides on retirement strategies as per the 2010-2011 tax year and understanding money issues at £12.75 and £10.25 respectively, with a discount for members.

In addition, we can provide online training for clients in areas like Time in Retirement, Health and Relationships in Retirement and Managing Change in Retirement. Plus, company in-house and face-to-face training are both available, alongside providing a Tax Support Network giving free financial advice on tax issues for pensioners.
