Smith & Williamson is delighted to be hosting our fourth seminar for Members of Defined Benefit Pension Schemes on Friday 20 September 2019 at 8am, which may be of relevance to you or another interested party.

The number of Defined Benefit schemes in Ireland fell from 2,557 in 1991 to 1,541 in 2003 and fell further to 582 continuing schemes as at 31st December 2018*. Many members are not aware of the range of options available to them under these schemes.

This unique event will attempt to educate Members on their options and highlight other key areas of consideration.
