Morning Live: state pension, Isas and council tax

It’s Monday so that can only mean one thing – Iona was back on BBC Morning Live this week in her usual slot to discuss the latest hot button issues in the world of finance.

Iona was chatting about whether you should top up gaps in your national insurance record ahead of retirement (as the deadline for doing so gets pushed back), what the Isa season is and how you can get discounted council tax. Her tips included:

  • getting a full state pension forecast from the government so you know where you stand
  • looking into specialist Isa products to boost your savings towards specific goals, like the Lifetime Isa
  • exploring whether you’re in the wrong council tax band and finding out if you qualify for any discounts…

You can catch up on the full episode on BBC iPlayer now (dated 13.03.23) and you can catch a shorter clip on Iona’s Instagram account below.
