Money matters - occupational pension scheme benefits

Wesleyan’s live webinars bring staff together on a virtual platform which enables them to refresh their understanding of their occupational pension scheme benefits (Teachers’ Pension Scheme/Local Government Pension Scheme).

Entitlement to membership of the TPS or LGPS is a key employment benefit. Helping staff understand this benefit, and what it can provide for them and their families, promotes financial education and wellbeing.

‘Meet’ your local Wesleyan consultant as they provide a live and interactive webinar relevant for staff of all ages and career stages.

Choose from:

  • Understanding your Teachers’ Pension Scheme
  • Local Government Pension Scheme - outline for members
  • TPS Retirement planning seminar
  • Pension Taxation briefing for leadership teams

Personal financial advice for staff in the education sector is increasingly being viewed through a wellbeing lens.
