Pension and mortgage

    Dear All, I wonder if anyone can help...
    I am currently applying for a mortgage. As the mortgage will go passed my retirement age, I am required to provide details of my monthly pension income. I have used the prediction tool of the TPS but was told by the bank that it was not detailed enough. I have sent a message on the TPS website but it seems that they are unable to help. I cannot secure my mortgage without this information. Has anyone got an idea of getting round this? Thank you.

    I'm afraid I can't help, but would just suggest trying another mortgage provider or perhaps a mortgage broker.

    Morninglover's suggestion is a perfect response. I had a 15 year mortgage on a replacement house that went 3 years beyond my expected retirement date. No problem with that at all.

    My mortgage had a date after my retirement date in fact paid off several years early. No problems or questions about future pension. I wonder if the length of time to pay it off is a factor.
    But yes try another provider.

    Have you tried the 'benefit statement' that is personalised to you when you login to the TPS website instead of the generic tool?

    If you are in a Union, then their Pensions Provider may be able to help eg NASUWT is connected to Wesleyan. Check both National web sites for link to their Providers.

    We moved house when I was 57, porting the mortgage over with us. It had 5 years left on the term, and there was no question asked about paying it off. Are you expecting the term to go beyond the National Pension age as opposed to your teacher pension age?
