Hi everyone, Im in my third year of teaching and im in the process of buying my first home. I am currently paying £130 per month for teachers pension, and at the minute that £130 would make a huge difference in my bank rather than in my pension each month. I was wondering if there is a way to opt out of the pension scheme for a fixed period, say 12 months? Does anyone have any information about whether this is possible and if so, how do i go about it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
