if you need any advice or help about the various options and schemes available
at the moment age partnership are the people to contact , i did , and i was impressed
with their professional , but friendly responce
I found Age Partnership to be courteous and helpful from the very first contact we had. They called me at the time we previously agreed, no sales pressure and all my queries were answered and explained and the transition to my pension provider was seemless and i was kept informed of the progress al the time.
Communication and attention to detail was first class and i would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for quality pension annuity options.
I am glad I found Age Partnership. After contacting them they always kept in contact with me throughout the process and put my mind at rest that I was in safe hands. It was always clear what was happening and everything proceeded as they said it would.
I have no hesitation in recommending this service.
After researching various companies it was evident that Age partnership were the most efficient and reliable
From the moment we spoke to Caroline Lee we felt confident she would do her utmost to help us without putting pressure on us.Its a very difficult time making such important decisions but Caroline took all the stress and worry away and made it seem very simple. She not only is doing her job but shows genuine empathy and nothing was too much trouble
I have no reservation in recommending Caroline and Age partnership
I hope Caroline will be acknowledged as she is an excellent representative of your company
We were kept well informed by letter and telephone from begining to end. Every step was handled in a prompt and courteous manner. I felt totally confident and relaxed with the whole procedure and I will miss my regular chatty updates with the staff. Thankyou all. Reference 1046764
Would highly recommend this team. They constantly kept me informed as to progress and were thoroughly professional throughout. Responded quickly but without pushing and constantly asked if I wanted to proceed. No sales pressure at all.
I have only given them 3 out of 5 based upon the confusion around commencement date, the sending out of a form completely blank when it would have been easier for just the bits necessary to be highlighted.
The original quote was for an annuity based upon open market option whereas Canada Life wanted to do it as an immediate vesting pension. This required fresh application forms.
Having said that our contact at Age Partnership quickly put matters right with an updated form and this was then processed quickly.
Check out other companies if you like, but you'll find that your final choice will be to go with Age Partnership.
They operate with knowledgeable, forthright and honest employees who explain exactly what you need to know and give you ALL of the information, “pros & cons”, that you need so that you can make an informative, balanced decision. They don’t push you into anything!
Their manner is always friendly, polite and respectful – everything you would expect from a professional organisation. They know how to treat people on their own level without being condescending or dismissive. They listen and respond with patience.
They were diligent in keeping us fully informed at all steps of the process.
Transactions were carried out to our timescale without feeling that we were pressurised in any way.
A good experience all round. I would not hesitate to recommend Age Partnership to anyone.

From start to finish, a professional and efficient service. Step by step, the process was clear and the outcome as good as it could have been. Follow up customer care also impressive. No complaints at all.
Buying an annuity from Age Partnership went really well. Speed of response and clarity of information provided was excellent. The rates achieved were significantly better than two other brokers we approached, who were slow and labourious to deal with.
Only two minus points were stream of email 'offers' triggered by website visits and
a marked slow down in updating us with progress in what transpired to be the final week of the process.
My score for Age Partnershpwould be 9 out of 10.
well as you know I wasn't sure about equity release...you hear such things...anyway from start to finish "they" were so helpful, non pushy and showed they had my best interest at heart. I checked it all out with the family.it will let me do the jobs on the house and help the boys and family...so we all win...and the process was really quick and efficient......close all the shops I am coming!!!!!
Have a friendly chat with one of their advisors and be pleasantly surprised.
No pressure selling just honest advise which I'm sure will be beneficial to your financial wellbeing.
When looking for the best annuity return on my Stakeholder Pension I got estimates from a number of web sites. Not only was estimated pension via Age Partnership the largest, they were also the quickest to follow up my enquiry. Literature arrived virtually by return post and the Annuity Adviser rang me at the time promised. The Adviser was extremely informative and dealt with all queries thoroughly and professionally. Once the paperwork was completed, Age Partnership arranged for a courier to collect the required proofs of identity, which were returned by Special Delivery within two days. The processing of the paperwork was completed within a week and I received my tax free lump sum a week later.
I have been extremely impressed with the efficiency and professionalism
demonstrated by Age Partnership throughout the whole process and would recommend them to anyone seeking to get the best possible returns on an annuity.

Gwenda and I would recommend Age Partnership to all and everyone entering this situation ie Equity Release.
I would always recommend anyone going to Age Partnership for their Annuities , because not only were they extremely helpful and patient with me, explaining each step in the process, they actually shopped around on my behalf to find me the best deal saving me a lot of trouble, and more to the point I got an increase in my annuity of a massive 41% over my original provider's best offer. It's what's called a " No Brainer "
I don't know very much about pensions and annuities, but my wife found Age Partnership on the web when it was time to sort out her pension - she told me they were good, so when it came time to do my pension I went straight to them. I must say they are very good - they are professional, patient and polite. If they say they will do something, they do it. If they say they will call back on a certain date and time, they do so. I found them to be very helpful, very clear in their explanations and most importantly they got a good result for me arranging my pension provision. Great service and I recommend them.
Age Partnership just talked me through all the steps I needed to consider before decidnig on my annuity, found me a good deal (I compared it with another company and with on-line comparison sites) and were not phased when I changed my mind about some the choices I had made. It was straightforward with all the bureaucratic hassle done by them, not me.

we have experienced from start to completion ,a very proffesional attitude from all concerned,which was of considerable help in bringing about a successful conclusion.very informative documentation throughout.
Age Partnership gave us a caring and measured response to our enquiry. At every stage we were well advised and kept fully in touch with developments. The staff were helpful at all times and took the pressure out of what might otherwise have been a complicated and trying time.

From the first contact, were kept well advised, well informed and 'well looked-after'.
Patience and understanding in all dealings with thoughtful consideration for the - what we considered - major decision of our future.
All contacts were considerate, extremely helpful and moved our request on with no delays; your representatives advice was clear, concise and always backed-up with a written document to confirm all our wishes.
Age Partnership have proved to be very good at communication and this is so important when it comes to what can be a quite bewildering time to make important decisions. However, there were a couple of hiccups along the way. (1) I was sent incorrect forms to complete. (2) After receiving the lump sum payment had to enquire when annuity payments commenced. Age Partnership contacted Hodge Lifetime and were informed that they were 'awaiting confirmation' that I had accepted the new quote. These queries were soon resolved by new forms being emailed to me for completion and Age Partnership confirming they hadn't realised they had to accept the new quote on my behalf as they don't normally deal with Hodge Lifetime but immediately apologised to me and did accept new quote ensuring payment still came out this month. Also the first payment was received tax free although Age Partnership said it would be taxed (tax is to be taken later apparently). Overall really satisfied with Age Partnership as all queries seem to have been sorted out. Customer reference number 943465
I was in a difficult situation at work and ended up taking early retirement. I didn't feel confident about the process and wasn't sure I could afford it! As soon as I contacted AP I found the person on the phone to be helpful and sympathetic. It took several weeks before I finally decided to cash in my pension but there was never any pressure put on me and in the end AP got me a very good deal!
I was approached by a number of companies saying they could help me with my pension annuity. I selected Age partnership because they were the only company that followed up on their promises. I found every member of staff that i dealt with from the first phone call to the last to be friendly and helpful.
Good customer service is hard to come by these days but I was trully impressed by AGE PARTNERSHIP. Well done! I would recommend you.
When your private pension is about to mature I would seriously reccomend you using Agepartnership. They are efficient friendly and deliver excellent results. Never simply accept your original pension provider's quote.
How simple it all was, no out sourcing, just good old Yorkshire honest people,Tom and all the boys and girls which helped with my successful applcation,they have made an old man happy that also goes to moretolife and williams&co both were top draw so
Age Partnership were extremely helpful in negotiating my annuity. They were able to find a company which increased the offer I got from my original provider and were very speedy and efficient in dealing with all the documentation. They kept me informed all the way through and were able to help me find my way through the various options by explaining all the terminology. I am very happy with their service.
Age Partnership were very helpful with my initial enquiry before I was ready to proceed with equity release. When I decided to go ahead, they explained every step and patiently answered my questions. Importantly, they laid out the pros and the cons, several times and were concerned that I should be as fully informed as possible when reaching a decision. The advisor was most helpful and kept me informed at every stage of the process, and my cheque arrived quickly. This firm made a potentially stressful procedure relatively stress-free!
We had a great experience with Age Partnership, they were quick with their responses, and most importantly no one was pushy as that's a real turn off. We felt we could have said no at any time before signing.
Everything was explained so well and we hardly had any questions. We were thrilled that completion only took a week until we saw our money in the bank, fantastic!!! No we're going to enjoy it!!
From the very first phone call the whole experience has been very easy with no pressure just a very professional service that gave me peace of mind and the best solution for my future pension annuity.
Age Partnership dealt promptly and efficiently with my Annuity. I was guided through the process in a clear and straightforward way. At each stage I was kept fully informed of progress, either by letter or a telephone call from one of the staff.
From first contact to completion, it only took a matter of a few weeks.
I enjoyed a good experience dealing with Age Partnership.
