Legal & General launch new retirement podcast

To help people get the most out of their money and retirement, Legal & General are launching the Rewirement podcast.

Legal & General has teamed up with Strictly Come Dancing Head Judge, Shirley Ballas, who as the host will bring her passion for embracing life as she gets older. Each fortnight, Shirley will be speaking to retirees and would-be retirees from across the nation to talk about what it means to retire in today’s world. Throughout the series, she’ll be joined by special guests from across the industry for a straight-talking, honest discussion about people’s experiences, hopes and expectations for retirement.

The first two episodes will be available to download on the 11th May. There’s a special one off which tackles your questions and concerns on COVID-19, and how it could impact your finances in retirement. The other episode is the first in the series to help you plan for retirement. We’ll be hearing from our guests and experts about their experiences and advice for transitioning into retirement.

The podcasts will be available to download on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify. Alternatively you can find more information here.

Meg Dickens, Marketing Director, Legal & General Retail Retirement, said: “This is a hugely exciting project to be involved in. We are creating a platform for people to talk openly and honestly about money, but also other important aspects of life in retirement – our health, feeling connected, contributing to society. With our Rewirement podcasts, we want to give retirees a voice to air their questions and their concerns, something we feel is particularly important in these strange and challenging times.”

Shirley Ballas said: The Rewirement podcast series is allowing me to speak to some amazing people. They all have fascinating stories and show that there really is no blueprint for life in retirement. Just as practice makes perfect on the dance floor, the same can be said when preparing for your retirement. While I’ll be leaving the scorecard at home, we all want to be able to score that perfect 10 when it comes to enjoying retirement, so I encourage everyone to tune into these podcasts!”
