(PRWEB UK) 5 December 2013 -- When it comes to retirement planning, there are a number of options to consider to ensure both income and family are protected.
Over50choices has just launched the final phase of its online retirement planning service, aimed at helping Over 50s manage their finances through their pre and post retirement years.
For those looking to save money, boost retirement income or just put plans in place that secure their families’ future, the website now offers:
• Equity release calculator and guides
• Annuity calculator and guides
• The UKs widest choice of funeral planning options
• Unique Over 50s life insurance comparison tool
• Wills, probate and legal services
• Affordable health insurance
From comparing annuities to maximise pension income to releasing money tied up in property with equity release; the jargon free, user friendly information fully explains the choices available whilst the comparison service gives visitors to the site the opportunity to compare quotes and choose the most suitable option.
To complete its range of retirement planning tools, the website also has comprehensive guides on making a Will and funeral planning which includes comparisons of market leading prepaid funeral plans and Over 50s Life Insurance.
Speaking about the range of retirement services available, MD Ashley Shepherd said, “We have tried to develop a range of services that support people on the run up to retirement and beyond; a one stop shop for all their planning needs. When it comes to financial planning, there are still too many grey areas with people left in the dark about the options available to them, which in many cases leaves them out of pocket. We want to demystify personal finance; make it easily accessible to everyone and above all give people choices so they can make a more informed decision; the right decision”.
One example of this would be the 60% of people who currently accept the pension scheme on offer through their existing provider, rather than exercising their right to shop around and chose an annuity that could increase their income, in some cases by thousands of pounds; all because of a lack of awareness or understanding.
The company comes with strong credentials; as former marketing director of AXA Wealth and AXA Sun Life Direct, Ashley has a wealth of experience in financial services and the company’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) registration supports their ongoing commitment to customer service and value.
