WEST Brom building society is running a free pension clinic in Bromsgrove's high street on Thursday, October 18.

Residents are invited to learn more about pensions and retirement planning from an independent financial adviser.

Retail manager Shaine Jones said: "Pensions are a popular way of saving for retirement, but understanding how they work is a complicated business.

"Seeking help from a qualified expert could hold the key to successful financial planning for later life, which is why we are organising clinics throughout our branch network during October.”

Places are limited so people are advised to book a half-an-hour slot in advance by contacting the branch on 0345 241 7216.

There is no charge to attend and no obligation to make an investment.

Fees or charges may apply if action is taken after the initial review.
