I pay into a works pension though it will be worth peanuts when i retire i also get a pension now from the MWPS (pit pension) and the wife has just took a lump sum out of her SA Council pension that she paid into for over 20 years but we will still have to rely on the state pension.

I don't have a pension mate, I'm in my forties mate and I reckon the generation before me were the lucky ones. My old man has it sorted god bless him. Just missed the war, has that 'old fashioned' values having lived in a frugal era and values things in today's throw away society.....but has a pension that is wort something...I'm lucky and have a few fingers in..

The days of the Nationalised industry pensions are now a thing of the past all these workplace pensions now in place I believe will be worth feck all in say 30 years time and will be an exscuse to no doubt abolish the state pension.

Got a good company pension but they're talking about changing it now. I pay into a share scheme and have loads of bonds. Paid for the house. Looking to invest in bits and bobs as well for the future

I think all the incidents were those who payed into private pensions then ended up getting shafted put people off paying into them bricks and mortar have got to be a better investment for those that can afford to.

Oddly enough I have been reading about pensions today, I was getting a bit worried as I have always worked but they have been part time jobs where I dont pay tax or ni contributions.

 

I have paid ni contributions in the past at times but no where near the 30 years I need to get a full pension, apparently if you have 10 years or less of contributions you WONT get a pension unless you make up the shortfall of ni contributions

 

This is a big worry for me as I bring in less than 100 quid a week & dont relish the though of having to pay out a sizeable chunk of my earning to make up the contributions.

 

I am up shit creek I think :laugh:

Good advise lol it pisses me off me and the wife pay tax on the pensions we now get and no doubt will pay tax on them when we both have to stop working.
