Pension delay due to 24-hour rule?

Discussion in 'Retirement' started by Hanow, Feb 4, 2011.

  1. I have recently had a conversation with someone at the TPA - and have to confess, remain very confused.
    I shall be 60 this year and so shall not receive my state pension until next year, but my teacher's pension is payable from this year. However, as I have just accepted some One-to-One tuition work, I mentioned that during my conversation regarding how to/when to request my pension. The officer I spoke to told me to ensure that I did not undertake any of this tuition work on by birthday, nor for 24 hours either side of that day, indicating that if I did, my pension start date would be significantly delayed.
    Does anyone know what this is about? I have to confess, I remain baffled as to why. From what I understood, the quantity of work undertaken throughout the year was immaterial, only as long as I avoided the dates around my birthday. [​IMG]
    I have tried to look it up online, but can only find something similar relating to health workers and their pensions - albeit that is as clear as mud as well!
