How it works

Our tried and tested shopping around process follows 3 simple steps

It all starts with a chat

It’s free, with no commitment.

Call for a chat with one of our friendly retirement options specialists; help us to understand what you want to achieve.

We’ll explain all the annuity options clearly to help you to shape your choices and make a decision.

To help us get the highest income for you we’ll need information about your health: this includes medical conditions (past or present), medications and lifestyle factors, for example smoking and height/weight. Remember, these details might entitle you to an increased income, so it’s worth giving us the detail!

We do the shopping around

We will shop around all the providers on the market to get the highest income. We’ll share a comparison summary with you and provide a detailed quote for the best rate.

We’ll go through the annuity quote with you and ensure you understand the details.

We can communicate with you securely using our online client portal. If you prefer we can use email or the post.

If there’s anything that you’re unsure of, we’ll take time to answer your questions.

Apply and set up

When you’re ready to proceed, we'll help you to complete any necessary paperwork.

Our team will take it from there, we’ll liaise with your pension providers and set everything up for you.

You’ll be kept informed of progress and it will be easy to get in touch with us if you need to.
