Retirement may seem a long time away, but it can mean a major change not just in lifestyle, but also in financial circumstances. Planning ahead, by putting some money aside while working to provide an income for the future, can ensure that retirement is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
The Trustees of the Scheme and the University invite you to do this by joining the University's Scheme, this leaflet is only a short guide. The Scheme Booklet contains more details about the benefits than can be put into this leaflet, and as well as the Application Form. You can obtain a copy by asking the Pensions Officer at Human Resources, Bryn Afon, University of Wales Bangor, Bangor, Gwynedd LL57 2DG.
We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Scheme.
