Pension Awareness Week digital events move to October

Pension Geeks founders Parkinson and Bland

Grimsby firm Pension Geeks has postponed its planned Pension Awareness Week, which was due to begin today, in light of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

The firm had hoped to help raise pension awareness for 40 million people this year, including through its flagship annual digital campaign Pension Awareness Week, but customers will now have to wait until October for their annual dose of “practical and meaningful help” with pensions.

Pension Geeks said in a statement on its website: “As a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we have postponed the Pension Awareness live shows and activity due to take place from Monday 12th September to Friday 16th September. After consideration of today’s confirmation of the mourning period, the week of live shows will now take place from Monday 31st October until Friday 4th November 2022.”

The company’s founders Jonathan Bland and Rachel Parkinson added that the change will not affect the order of the timetable, or any bookings customers have already made, and that all bookings and registrations for Pension Awareness will simply shift to the equivalent time in the week commencing the 31st October.

They added that of the new timings are inconvenient, customers can rearrange their bookings through the Pension Awareness Week website, and that all events will be available on catch up through the website for those who cannot rearrange.
