Many, if not all workplaces offer their employees an option to join an all bells and whistles retirement plan. But what if your workplace doesn’t offer any plans or it is not a suitable plan for you? Or maybe you work for yourself and have no idea where to start with regards to saving for your retirement.

There is no need to worry, there are other measures that you can take to get some help in deciding what form your future finances will take. Retirement plan services are usually available in all areas and can be found within many organizations that will give you the necessary information to help you save for your future.

You can even organize a meeting with your bank manager for future savings advice.

Another route could be to find out at if there is a resource with your local community centre or any other non-profitable organization that you are a member of such as your church if you have one or a charity. If they don’t have one in place, you can ask for the possibility of setting up a focus group for those looking for information in retirement planning. Their will be many people only too happy to relay their successes and give tips and advice.

There may also be professionals of this nature available who can offer some free and non-biased advice on the matter. You might want to find out if there are any members with expertise who would agree to give a talk. You can advertise in the local paper and billboards, where allowed.

There is also the great resource which is the internet for a plethora of advice on this subject. Sites such as and
