Get Ready

Get Ready is a free, interactive online learning tool to empower individuals to understand how pensions work and to prepare for their financial future after retirement.

Many people see pensions as a daunting and difficult topic. Because of this, the Get Ready tool has been designed to be simple, easy to use and quick, featuring six interactive ten-minute modules. These modules provide information about how pensions work, the benefits of having a pension, the associated risks and action that you can take today to plan for your retirement.
