Your plan for a happy retirement

When we change from a work situation, to one where there is no structure and nobody telling us what to do, it can be a huge challenge.

How do we stay motivated, content and with a sense of purpose?

Our pre-retirement workshops will help you plan for what could be 25–30 years of a happy and fulfilled retirement.

How we can help

The decision when to retire is a significant personal decision these days.

If you are an ICE member and retirement planning feels like a daunting prospect, you are not alone.

We have teamed up with LaterLife, the UK’s leading provider on retirement preparation, to give you and your peers the chance to swap ideas and get a head start in planning your retirement.

Because retirement planning is about so much more than planning your finances, our one-day workshops will cover many different areas, for instance:

Entitlements and Benefits



Pensions/Investment options

Relationships after retirement

Working part time or reducing hours

Managing on a reduced income

Increased leisure time

Staying healthy

You’ll take away a folder containing comprehensive handouts for each section of the programme, as well as useful resources to help you plan your retirement.
