Consumer Safety

Consumer safety is paramount when dealing with your pension. We aim to educate consumers on how to stay safe. We provide information on how to ensure the advisor you deal with is registered and monitored by the Central Bank of Ireland. All of our brokers partners are authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. We send you their details and links to their profiles on the Central Bank of Ireland’s website so you con confirm this independently before speaking with them. 

We also aim to provide information on the other state/non-state agencies involved in the pension sector and how you can use their websites to ensure you are safe hands when choosing your financial advisor. 

 

The site never charges consumers for pension information or to use the pension tools we make available to you such as our interactive tools or pension calculators. 

Any tips or suggestions on the site are purely down to experience or research from the Irish Pension Information Team. 

We know consumers can increase their pension wealth by improving their pension related knowledge. You can use the articles on this site to keep your pension safe and ensure you optimise your pension for retirement.
