Retirement age - what changes are there for teachers in their mid- forties ?

Discussion in 'Retirement' started by wzyszy, Jan 10, 2011.

  1. Currently I am happy teaching & have no plans to leave the profession but I am confused as to when I can qualify for a Teachers pension as I understand the new changes have raised the retirement age - Is it true that as a 45 year old I will now not be able to recieve a full Teachers Pension till I am 62 and that my State Pension will not be paid till I am 68?
     
  2. If you were in TP on 31st Dec 2006 you are in the old scheme with a normal retirement age of 60. If you joined after the NRA is 65.
    At the moment I expect your State Pension would be due when you are 66. You can check this by putting in your date of birth onto;

  3. I am 62 and have been thinking about retiring. I still enjoy the job and know I will feel slightly lost without it as I qualified when I was 21. The life change will be enormous for me. While walking in the Lakes I decided on July '16. I will be 64 nearly 65. Enough is enough I guess. I don't want to be doddery in the classroom! Plan to go to the lakes for a the whole month of September to try to break the rhythm of the academic year. Will never step into a school again after that (except perhaps to collect the grandchildren)

    There's nothing like a plan. Good luck . Expect it to take a couple of years to work your way into the new life.
