We are all entitled to a State Pension if we have made some contribution into this system. One option that is increasing in popularity is the retire and return option. This is where people retire, draw pensions and return to work as part time at two or three days a week for example.

There is a lot of flexibility now introduced, making pensions more easily accessible. Seeking professional financial advice could help you to make the most of your pension entitlements.
