For customers only

At Aegon, we’re taking part in Talk Money Week to help you get talking about your money – whether it’s about managing your savings, pensions or chatting about how the coronavirus has impacted your financial situation.

Talk Money Week is an annual campaign, run by the Money and Pension Service (MaPS), which launches on the 9th November 2020. It’s a great opportunity for you to join, start or lead the conversation with friends and family, at work or with anyone you feel most comfortable talking to – on all things money. This campaign will help get conversations started but we should remember to keep having these conversations all year round.

Even though most of us don’t like talking about money – by doing so, we really could improve our financial wellbeing. When we talk about financial wellbeing, we refer to how people feel about the control they have over their financial future – and their relationship with money. That includes their ability to respond to financial unpredictability and unexpected expenses.

People with healthy financial wellbeing can meet their long-term financial goals and make informed choices that allow them to enjoy a meaningful life – both now and in retirement.

From the 9th November we’ll be talking about:

  • Getting your affairs in order – learning how to take control of your savings to get you on your way to a lifetime of financial security.
  • Financial wellbeing – see how you can find financial freedom through future planning.
  • Pension scams – find out what to look for and how to protect yourself and your retirement savings from illegal activities.
  • Advice makes sense – understand the common misconceptions about advice and how a financial adviser could help improve your financial wellbeing.

MaPS have also provided helpful guides on how to start conversations about money such as talking about money with yourself, your friends and family and even discussing how to overcome money problems and poor mental wellbeing.

By having these conversations, you may feel more confident with managing your savings, and it might bring some peace of mind especially during these challenging times.

Make sure to look out for our social media posts to find all the content you need – and you can also join in the conversation by using #TalkMoney.
