FBU Does Pension Awareness Day
Date: 15th September 2017 Price: £0
Pension Awareness Day (PAD) is an award winning campaign that takes place annually on 15th September.
The aim of the day is to promote the importance of saving for the future and to alert the nation that it is not saving enough for retirement. Family Business United is delighted to be celebrating the day by focusing on pensions with articles, features and more besides throughout the day.
Why Pension Awareness Day?
The initiative was devised in response to concerns that people are not saving enough for their retirement. According to a recent report by the government, almost 12 million people are failing to save enough for their future.
This coupled with an increasing ageing population and uncertainty over the changes to the state pension, means that despite auto-enrolment being introduced to the workplace, it is clear there is still a long way to go in equipping people with the tools and information they need to help them save more.
Everyone working within a family business needs to consider the need for planning for later life and as such we are delighted to be supporting this great initiative. We will be sharing articles and insights during the day on social media to continue to raise awareness of the need to plan for the future.
