The second part of the workshop led by resource persons Dr Papa Nii Maale-Adsei and Mr John Mbroh took participants through Healthy Living and how to plan for life during retirement.
Speaking at the workshop, Mr Joseph Ampofo, Managing Director of Enterprise Trustees said the retirement planning workshop is part of holistic efforts towards ensuring the income security of members when they retire.
‘In 2020, formal sector workers who turn 60 years will begin to take their lump sum benefits from private corporate Trustees, at Enterprise Trustees we believe that beyond paying out retirement benefits, we need to also ensure that our members are adequately prepared for life after work and this is why we are bringing our members together to sensitize them.”
He urged clients to take advantage of the innovative platforms introduced by Enterprise Trustees such as the Enterprise Advantage App, The USSD Code *714*333# and the member online portal ‘The Stable’ to monitor and keep track of their pension contributions.
