EA in partnership with the Money and Pensions Service are delighted to be able to deliver an interactive webinar to all staff employed in Schools and Services on Wednesday 26 January 2022 from 4.00pm – 5.30pm.

A menopause Pension expert from the Government-backed MoneyHelper will help you to think about planning for retirement, to look at your pension options for taking early or flexible retirement and to talk about how you can save more into your pension to compensate for the long term effect of reducing your working hours or salary.

At this event a menopause expert will outline what the menopause is, armed with a list of 35 symptoms, physical, psychological, and emotional. She will look at the legal framework and discuss how menopause can impact decisions made, that sometimes cannot be reversed.

The Menopause can be a very difficult transition for a lot of women. The symptoms are physical (hot flushes), psychological (anxiety) and emotional (feeling worthless) and these can all have an impact on our decision making. The menopause usually happens in our late 40’s; a time when we could be experiencing other life changing events, such as caring for an elderly relative, children leaving home, career progression. You might also find that menopause symptoms could make you think about changing your job or reducing the number of hours you work.
