Pension Roadshows

In recent times the Local Government Pension Scheme has gone through some significant changes, and we at the Cheshire Pension Fund have received requests from members/employers to visit and provide talks/answers to queries.  The Fund is keen to meet with members and has  arranged a series of drop in sessions where we will be operating an open door policy for members and non-members  to pop in and speak to one of our pension experts. (no appointment required)

The events are being run over two separate weeks in October and November at locations throughout the county (specific details of which are shown on the poster).
