Hargreaves Lansdown provides free access to pensions experts

Hargreaves Lansdown has launched a pensions &#39Open Day&#39 so that investors can access advice from its team of pensions experts.
Through a free pensions helpline operating from Saturday 7th August to Monday 9th August the experts will field calls on topics such as final salary schemes, state benefits, contracting out or buying annuity, – areas of pension planning which leave investors grasping for answers despite the government trying to simplify pensions.
Hargreaves Lansdown are encouraging investors to ask questions about pensions no matter how obscure. But for regulatory reasons pensions experts will not be able to give full answers to every question. Regulated advice will be dealt with separately.
All enquiries will be recorded in order to get a snapshot of what are investors priority issues and all the information will be available after the event for investors reference. In addition there will also be an &#39out of hours&#39 service for callers to leave a call back request over the weekend.
