North Lincolnshire Council cannot recommend any particular adviser or advice service and it is important that you satisfy yourself that an adviser is properly qualified to give advice, however we have listed some services below to help you get started:
The Society of Later Life Advisers
The Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) helps people to find independent financial advisers who specialise in the financial needs of older people.
All advisers on the database have to prove that they meet appropriate criteria and have the right qualifications before they are accredited by SOLLA.
To find a local SOLLA registered adviser visit the Society of Later Life Advisers website.
