Not sure or looking for financial advice?

If you’re not sure of the type of pension you would like to start or would like to understand how or why you might consolidate the pensions that you hold through other providers, an NFU Mutual Financial Adviser can help.

An NFU Mutual Financial Adviser can help you plan your retirement based on your personal circumstances such as the amount of income you would like to have in retirement, the age you plan to retire at and the amount you are able to contribute.

You can book an appointment with an NFU Mutual Financial Adviser by requesting a call back from a local agency office, who will then introduce you to a financial adviser.

Alternatively, you can call us, 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, and we’ll put you in touch with your local NFU Mutual Financial Adviser:

0800 622 323

Know what you need and not looking for financial advice?

You may already know the type of pension you want and how much you want to invest based on your own assessment of your personal circumstances.

You can call our Non-Advised Sales team, 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, on:
