The state pension is an easy target for our scorn, especially if we’re a long way away from receiving it. But I’ve never yet met a pensioner who isn’t glad to receive it, so maybe we use need to understand I better. Today I want to give you what you need to know and what you need to do to make the most of this valuable benefit.
This podcast is brought to you with the help of Seven Investment Management, who specialise in multi-asset investing, something I talk about a lot, and which I think should form the core of most people’s investments. 7IM have been helping me out here on MeaningfulMoney for ages, and I'm very grateful.
