I hope someone can answer this question for me. I will be 55 in 2012 (next year) and was looking at leaving then with a reduced pension etc; but when I looked at the info for leaving at 60 it was a considerable difference. Now, I don't want to work til 60 but could I BUY 5 years of contributions from the TPS people? or does it have to be privately arranged with another company? thanks for any advice - it is a mine field!!!
