Pensions Learning Hub

Take control and feel good about your future

When you spend years of your life working you owe it to yourself to have the best retirement possible. But this won’t happen automatically. That’s why it’s important to spend some time thinking about your financial future and learning about your pension, so you can make the right decisions and put the right plans in place.

Our Pensions Learning Hub contains a mixture of video guide and live online seminars, designed to guide you through your pension journey - from the start of your career until retirement.

Our online seminars are delivered by an expert from our partner Origen Financial Services. They last about 1 hour and there’ll be the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Whether you’ve just joined a scheme, have been contributing for some time or are thinking of winding down from work, there’s a seminar designed to help you.

Please note that the seminars are for TPT members. The content covered in the sessions is based on defined contribution pension savings and does not cover defined benefit/final salary pension arrangements.
