Pensions Awareness Week is back!
Pensions Awareness Week is an initiative to raise awareness about retirement planning, and help people take charge of their long-term savings.
This year, we’re going digital. Taking place from 21 to 25 September, we will host webcasts, offer content and consultations, and speak up in the media.
We’ve got guest speakers from among the best in the industry, plus fresh ideas from outside, as well as the voices of regular people getting to grips with their pensions.
Interested? Read about the webcasts we’re running, and register using the links below.
Starting a pension

Women and pensions
Thursday, 24 September, 1pm
We all know that women are worse off when it comes to pay. What’s becoming clearer is the lifetime effect, and the need to take action now. We’ll discuss why women lose out when it comes to pensions, and what can be done about it.
With Susan Elliott, former head of employee engagement at AIB, Teresa Kelly-Oroz, head of public policy at Irish Life, and Leanne Long of FinanciallyFit.ie.
We look forward to seeing you!
