Our 2019 tour highlights

 

Throughout September we've been travelling around the UK celebrating Pension Awareness Day with our Taking on Your Future Together Tour. Our tour's taken us from Southampton to Glasgow and we’ve answered 1000’s of questions along the way. We’ve also offset emissions from the tour through a tree planting initiative with www.carbonfootprint.com.

Our tour is now finished for this year but we wanted to share some of our highlights with you. Here's a few of the amazing pictures captured on tour along with some key pension related questions answered by our Pension Experts in our short films.
