Job Title:
Pensions Technical Specialist
Money and Pensions Service

I am a Pensions Technical Specialist at MoneyHelper and I spend my days helping members of the public with pension queries. MoneyHelper provide free impartial advice about financial matters, and pensions is my speciality. 

I have a particular interest in how menopause can affect your pension by reducing your income and therefore the amount of pension you’re building up, and your ability to make decisions about a complicated subject. 


Job Title:
Assistant Technical Specialist

I have worked in the Pensions Industry for 16 years, of which the last four years has been as an Assistant Technical Specialist at Moneyhelper. I have worked in a number of roles for both Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution schemes, doing different administration roles varying from dealing with the contributions coming into the scheme right through to the members being paid their benefits.

I regularly help to deliver Pension Wise appointments to members of the public and gain a great deal of satisfaction from helping our customers to better understand their pension benefits and the options available to them.
