A BUILDING society in Oswestry is encouraging customers to think about the future by hosting retirement planning clinics across its branch network.

On Thursday, February 20, the West Bromwich Building Society, in Church Street, will be running one of the clinics in partnership with Wren Sterling Independent Financial Advisers.

The free sessions will enable customers to discuss their retirement plans and ask questions on topics including workplace pensions and early pension withdrawal.

Appointments are available throughout the day and all customers are encouraged to book as spaces are limited.

Bookings can be made directly with the Oswestry branch and online via the West Brom website.

Nicola Willis, partnership manager at the West Brom said: “We know that keeping track of pensions and saving for the future can fall to the bottom of people’s priorities, but we want to help all our customers to start planning for their dream retirement sooner rather than later.

“Seeking advice from an expert can help our customers assess their current financial situation, and we do find that people are more prepared for retirement than they think.

"These sessions through Wren Sterling aim to help bring clarity for customers and give them access to expert advice they may not be able to receive otherwise.”

There is no charge to attend the retirement planning clinics and no obligation to take any advice.

Some fees or charges may apply if action is taken after the initial review with a Wren Sterling Independent Financial Adviser.
