  • Equity release

    Cyril Barrett, Age 67

    "Releasing equity from our home has allowed us to make a few home improvements."

    Having no one to leave their home to, Cyril and his wife decided that equity release was the right financial solution for them.

    With the cash released, they were able to carry out a range of home improvements and even bought themselves a new campervan.

    Mr Barrett commented: “We’ve wanted these things for a while but we wouldn’t have been able to do without releasing cash from our home.”

  • Equity release

    Dennis Bailey, Age 83

    "I'd say to anyone is a similar position to make the decision to go ahead - especially with Key!"

    Dennis originally took out equity release after learning about Key Retirement through an advertisement in the Telegraph. He was happy with the service and plan he received, so when an adviser contacted him with the chance to review his plan he decided to go ahead.

    By speaking with Key again he was able to get a better interest rate, meaning considerable savings for his estate.

    Speaking about his experience, Mr Bailey said: “The whole process was very smoothly handled in a highly professional and courteous manner.”

  • Annuity

    Emily Costa, Age 60

    "I think there's a lot of people like myself that don't understand the finer details and are worried about getting ripped off by companies that aren't who they say they are."

    Emily decided to take out an annuity with Key Retirement following a voluntary redundancy and knee surgery. She admits to having had some reservations about embarking on such a big decision, but her retirement options specialist was able to clearly explain everything to her and put her mind at ease about her choice.

    Talking about her dealings with her specialist, she said: “He was so helpful. He took me through all the steps. I wasn’t actually too sure about what I had to do but he explained it so well. He was really, really nice.
