Hi, probably a very similar story to many others. Gone back 2/3 weeks ago, new Leadership team, many staff made redundant in July to save money, so am finding already that my job as a primary class teacher now encompasses many, many other aspects of the jobs which have been axed, so I have decided to retire early. My question is, if I give my notice in Oct for the end of December- resign not retire- from school, can I then ask T Pension for my [pension to begin from January 27th once I have used up my December pay? If I resign, do the school need to know that I am intending to retire because I will not be taking my pension until after I have left their employ. Thanks for any replies.
