Pensionwise & LSA

Pension Wise

New pension rules came into effect on 6 April 2015.  You now have more freedom over how you take money from your pension pot. 

These changes affect you if;

  • You're 50 or over, and 
  • Have a pension based on how much has been paid into your pot (a defined contribution pension)

Face-to-face appointments are available at Maryhill Bureau - to make an appointment please phone 0141 944 7398.

Appointments are available Fridays from 9-5pm.

If you have a defined benefit pension, one based on your salary and length of time with your employer you can still get information from these organisations:
