Retirement planning: Your questions

On the panel: Stuart Bayliss and Chris Ball
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live
Wednesday, 15 April 2009 at 1502 BST

Paul Lewis took your questions on retirement planning and put them to a panel of expert guests on Wednesday's programme.

If you are in your 40s, 50s or 60s you will probably be thinking about whether you will have enough pension, savings and investments to ensure a comfortable retirement.

With the current downturn, many investments, annuity rates and savings rates have been falling.

So what are your options? And at what age?

You may even be thinking of working part-time well into your 60s.

Just what are your rights? And where do you go for advice?

Paul was joined by:

  • Stuart Bayliss of retirement income specialists Annuity Direct
  • Mark Meldon of independent financial advisers RC Gray
  • Chris Ball of TAEN - The Age and Employment Network

Producer: Diane Richardson
Presenter: Paul Lewis
