With an ever-increasing workload, many teachers find themselves too busy to think about their finances and retirement plans. That’s why our experienced Financial Consultants are here to help. They work exclusively with the teaching profession and are specifically trained in all aspects of your pay, employee benefits, career structure and pension scheme.
The Financial Services Act prevents trade unions from providing individual financial advice. However, the NASUWT is in partnership with Wesleyan, which is able to provide members with financial advice surrounding the recent pension changes through a personal face to face meeting or though ‘planning for retirement’ seminars’ that can be held at your school. If this is of interest to you please contact Wesleyan www.wesleyan.co.uk/appointment or alternatively you can call 0800 316 6554 quoting ref: 61287 or emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
