A prominent pension provider has warned that retirees could be preventing their families from helping them manage their finances should they become too ill to manage their affairs themselves causing potential financial crisis. According to a recent survey, retirees using income drawdown to fund their retirement have not, in the majority, set up Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) whereby they can appoint trusted family members or professional advisors to access funds should they not be able to through illness or mental capacity. This means that even a wife or husband would be forced to apply to the courts by way of a Court of Protection application to take charge of their relative’s finances. More and more people have to make complicated financial decisions on their pensions into older age; the risk of sudden illness or dementia increases. Many retirees are unprepared for this eventuality. The pension provider advises that the time to set up an LPA is well before you need it, and they will be highlighting this to their customers.

In around 1900 there were approaching 300 public houses in Great Yarmouth. The picture above is of the Saracens Hotel at around the turn of the century (1900). The pub closed for trading on 9 December 1968. The Saracens Head was a Lacons Public House and following its closure it became the office of John Critoph and Co and then an insurance office in 1996 before Norton Peskett acquired the building in September 2016.

The Alexis Ruthven Trust have reached their target of £50,000!

 Alexis Ruthven Trust logo

In June 2015 The Alexis Ruthven Trust was created to raise £50,000 to fund building alterations to meet a little boy's basic living needs as well as further equipment he will need as his condition progresses. The discretionary trust was set up with assistance from David Watson at Norton Peskett Solicitors.

Alexis lives in Suffolk with his three younger sisters and has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a progressive muscle wasting condition for which there is currently no treatment and no cure. Sufferers lose the ability to walk before their teens, and have a life expectancy of mid-late 20's.

Alexis is now enjoying his new ground floor bedroom and a fully accessible wetroom which has allowed Alexis to have greater independence while he's able to.
