Departmental Pensions

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what steps his Department is taking to advise staff of pension options available to them in relation to added years or additional voluntary contributions. (253258)

The Wales Office does not employ financial advisers. The HR team can talk to staff about pension options and provide information, but are not qualified to advise on their individual financial circumstances or retirement needs. They will always advise the individual to discuss their pension options (including added years and AVCs) with a qualified Independent Financial Adviser before making a decision.
