Sedgwick offers online calculators

Sedgwick Independent Financial Consultants is offering an online package to help people complete their self-assessment in time for the January 31 Inland Revenue deadline.

The online calculator at www.sedgwick.com includes specific calculators to assess pension savings and possible future long term care costs. It takes into account total income from state pension, benefits, private pension and investments.

It says the calculator can be used as the first step in sorting out finances but that individuals should seek out an IFA before purchasing products as a result.
