I have a maternity cover contact full time until August and then part time until November. I will be 60 in June and I thought I could have my pension from that day. However the TPA said that I need a break on my birthday in order to get my pension from that day. HR said that I need a different contract from that day. Can anyone please give me an advice? What are my options? Should I stop paying my pension contributions or I will get more benefits if I stay longer in service? Much appreciated for your answer.
