    In view of some of the recent scary sounding headlines - I'm not sure that anyone can say whether pensions will be as fine in 30 years time.
    However, at the moment, TPS covers all state schools, and I believe several independent ones. So as long as you get payments made into TPS it doesn't matter where you work.
    However - things may change. No harm in additional investments for your old age if you can afford them. There could be a lot of upset - pensions could well be the big battleground in the next couple of years. At the moment it's hard to distinguish between sound and fury as opposed to real government plans. I suspect some of the "ideas" are designed to scare us so that when their real plans come out we breathe a sigh of relief.
    We should strenuously oppose plans to hand our pensions over to the insurance companies (who will make more money out of the pensions than we will).
