Pensions seminar will provide free essential information

GONE are the days when pensions were an uninspiring dry subject, presented to disinterested employees attending out of a sense of obligation.

Pensions are hot news, and with the UK workforce in a state of flux and significant changes to pension legislation ahead, staff are more engaged than ever. Many are worried about the future and how best to prepare for life after work.

With this in mind, businesses need to be well-prepared for the changes in pensions and any questions they might get from staff. To help businesses rise to this challenge, Peterborough law firm hc solicitors is hosting a free lunchtime seminar on April 21.

Leading the seminar will be Steve Bee, Head of Pensions Strategy at Scottish Life and one of the country’s most respected pensions experts. Steve will explain the forthcoming changes which will require all companies to have a contributory pension scheme in place by 2012.

The seminar, conducted in partnership with Lucas Fettes, Financial Advisers, will be held in the conference suite at hc solicitors’ Thorpe Road offices.

Later this year hc solicitors will host a seminar on corporate manslaughter in conjunction with THB Insurance brokers, a seminar on surviving the recession with Moore Stephens Accountants and a further seminar featuring financial commentator, Justin Urquhart Stewart, in conjunction with Cowens insurers.

To attend the pensions seminar free of charge and find out how your company will be affected by the changes or notify your interest in future seminars, please contact Helen Wilson, Marketing Manager, hc solicitors on 01733 882800 or at
