Lighthouse Financial Advice

Practical, affordable financial advice for BFAWU members 

Do you want to secure your family’s financial future but don’t know where to start? 

Help is at hand! The BFAWU has appointed Lighthouse Financial Advice to provide members with practical affordable financial advice. 

How you could benefit

You can get expert, professional advice on personal finance issues such as how to: 

  • Build up a nest egg for yourself, your children or grandchildren. Saving just a little a month can grow into a sizeable amount if you invest it carefully. 
  • Boost your pension provision so you can enjoy a comfortable retirement. Making extra contributions costs less than you think – and the sooner you start the more likely you are to have a higher income when you retire. 
  • Protect your family’s income so they have enough money if the worst happens. Who knows what is round the corner? It makes sense not to put the family’s income at risk. 
  • Get the best possible income from your pension. Deciding how to access your pension is one of the biggest decisions you will ever have to make. Once you have made your decision it is unlikely that you will be able to change your mind later. 
  • Find the mortgage you need at a competitive rate. Your mortgage is likely to be your biggest financial commitment and your home may well become your biggest financial asset. It therefore pays (quite literally) to get it right. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or other loans secured on it. 

The sooner you take action, the more likely you are to achieve your financial goals whatever they may be: a family celebration in three years’ time, a comfortable retirement in 20 years’ time, or simply knowing that your family is protected against the unexpected.
