I started teaching in 1989. I taught at Monmouth Comprehensive School 1989 - 2010. I taught at Truro School 2010 - 2015. I was made redundant in July 2015. I divorced in 2010 and have a pension sharing order for 30% of my contributions during the period when I was married (24/07/1999 – 25/10/2010 11 years 3 months). I am 53 and am unlikely to find further employment in teaching. I have tried contacting Teachers Pensions with very limited success in answering my query. I am finding it very difficult to even get an estimate of how much pension I can expect to receive at 55 or what the balance between regular payments and lump sum options are. Please help.
