I’m 42. I have 4 years in the pre 2015 scheme and then had a break to raise a family. I now work part time and am likely to for the next decade. Deciding whether to sign up for the pension. I don’t know whether it will mess up the other 4 years which are in the better scheme. I find the calculators don’t really give me the answers and trying to ring the help line means a 45 minute wait being followed by getting cut off... driving me nuts. The reason I’m planning on a decade of teaching is because we will be moving then, the future plan is Supply. Extra question - after retiring and claiming your pension can you still do Supply?
