Your purpose in life is to find your voice.

I worked a variety of roles in the brewing world.

I didn’t give retirement an awful lot of thought

I think if I had done, I probably wouldn’t have retired. And if I hadn’t retired, I wouldn’t be where I am now.

Well, the first four years were great. I spent a lot of time in West Cork.

I just found myself getting itchy feet again.

I thought, ‘Jeez, there must be more to life than this’.

I started getting back into brewing with some friends of mine, and boom I was ready to go, you know?

It is wonderful to have that have that second opportunity. It’s a small company and I do all the brewing, it’s cool!

I think people our age have a huge amount to offer.

I would encourage anyone who is retiring, go out and find your voice.

Give it socks, find your voice, and then just do it for the rest of your life.

The whole world is at your feet, just get off your knees, you know!

My name is William. This is my Second Life.

There's a lot to look forward to

 At Standard Life, we want you to make the most of your Second Life.

Your Second Life is your life in retirement. This is the time when you can be the person you want to be, not the person you have to be.

No matter who your pension is with now, the choices you make at retirement can empower you to live the next phase of your life according to your rules.  

What can I do with my pension?

You can decide to leave your pension invested so that it has the chance to grow and take some income from it as you need to.

Or you can buy a guaranteed and fixed income for life.
