Pensions Awareness Week 2021
Backed by a host of businesses, Pensions Awareness Week is an initiative from Moneycube. Many parents admit to not understanding how pensions work and are unsure what happens to their contributions if they take a career break or paternal leave. So they added some parent-specific sessions to the line up this year.
Our co-founder Jill Holtz, chaired a session “Pensions and other essentials for parents in Ireland” as part of Pensions Awareness Week which you can view below.
