We can help people access money from their pension schemes or understand how their contributions may be affected by their cancer diagnosis. Some may be able to take a cash lump sum from a defined benefit scheme, for example.

Our web pages can help make sense of pensions, and our range of free financial information booklets includes Financial guidance: pensions, Managing your debt, and Help with the cost of cancer.

The financial guides on Macmillan Support Line (0808 808 00 00) can help with questions around pensions and other areas of personal finance.

Please check in with the people you support to make sure that they know how Macmillan can help.
