MoneyHelper is a free government service merging the Money Advice Service, the Pensions Advisory Service and Pension Wise. MoneyHelper is here to make your money and pension choices clearer, cut through the complexity and explain what you need to do and how you can do it.

If you need independent financial advice, you can find an independent financial adviser (IFA) in your area by visiting the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) register or using MoneyHelper.

Please note that an IFA will normally charge you for the advice they provide so you’ll need to check this with them. Neither NTL nor the Plan will cover the cost of any such advice.
