Thanks once again to everyone who has taken the time and effort to reply. I am now going to do one of the things that used to drive me mad about my ex wife ie ask a question, get the answer and then argue against the answer (And NO, she does not have any claim on my pension ) but I am getting conflicting views and want to get a definitive. Yorkshire understands that I need to have 25yrs pensionable service AND be aged 50 to get my full pension at 50, however Cheese Puff believes that so long as I do 25yrs, I will still get my pension at 50 regardless of my age at the point of resignation. Furthermore, if I left tomorrow with 23yrs pensionable service , would I definitely get my pension at 60 even after the revision of the State Pension Age to 67? Yorkshire's advice about going Part Time and Cheese's advice about sucking it up for a further 2 years are both sound and being carefully considered, so I am indebted to you both. As a foot note, having received the help that I have received after making a post out of the blue on Saturday, a little faith has been restored in the fact that not everyone in our organisation is out to do your legs and there are still some people who genuinely care about their peers, colleagues and friends. So for what is worth, Well done and please keep it up as uncertainty can leave you in a very lonely place.
Thanks for taking the time to reply. 'Cheese's Sage' ?! . . . . . . its no doubt my naivety but what or who is that please? Also, I have heard that 25yrs pensionable service is the threshold in terms of when you could walk away and still claim your pensions when you were due it but do you not have to be a certain age too? I would be 45 when I reach that landmark. Thanks again for your help.
I am aware that I may be regurgitating a question that has been asked on here a number of times therefore I apologise in advance, however can someone please spare a few minutes to give me an idea to where I am at given the following circumstances. I am on the 1987 Pension scheme since joining in Feb 1998.(19yrs Service), I have a further 4 years Military service pension. Therefore as It stands I have just over 23yrs pensionable service. I am currently 43. I am in the 'tiered' system for the new pension scheme and don't move over to the new pension scheme until 2019. The last bit of information may be academic because my question is simply ' If I were to resign now, when would I be able to get my pension?'. I fear the answer is State Pension Age which I know is currently 67 but will no doubt have changed to 103 when I am 6 days short of my 67th birthday. The fact that I am asking this when England are playing Scotland in the Six Nations proves just how desperate I am to walk away from a job that I once loved and was very committed and passionate about . . . . . . . how things change eh?!. Thanks in advance for your time and any help you can provide.
