    If all of the government's changes go through unmodified, the Teachers' pension scheme will still be one of the best deals you will ever be offered in your life.

    Why wouldn't you join?

    I'd say get into it as fast as you can - what if they implement the worst of the changes only for subsequent entrants?
  3. Regardless of what you have read about the changes to pensions the teacxhers' Pension scheme is still a good scheme and will be good even with changes. In the pribvate sector getting an equivalent (even after any changes) will still be more expensive.
    I am not a pensions adviser but if it were me I would pay into the scheme.
  4. Thank you, I think I'll be opting in!
