A free and impartial government service about your defined contribution pension options

Pension Wise is a free and impartial government service about the different ways you can take money from your pension.

People approaching retirement with a defined contribution pension pot will be able to get help from Pension Wise and Central and East Northamptonshire CAB is one of 50 delivery centres that offer Pension Wise appointments at 500 locations across England and Wales. Our locations are to the right of this page.
You can book an appointment – a 45-minute conversation between you and a Pension Wise guidance specialist.
You’ll get guidance on:

  • your pension options

  • tax

  • which options might be suitable for you

  • what you can do next

Appointments are over the phone or face to face. At the end you get a summary of the pension options and possible next steps. To book an appointment you should be 50 years old or over and have a defined contribution pension.

Pension Wise guidance specialists are impartial – they don’t recommend any products or companies and won’t tell you how to invest your money.
