    Does anyone know if it would be worth taking my pension now at 57 and 6 months as I now work only through agencies and don't envisage being able to contribute to the TPS again.
    Thanks
     
  2. I am taking my pension in August when I will be 56 and3 months. For me it will be worth it because it will release me from ever having to teach full time again and at the moment that is worth it's weight in gold. Yes, I'm losing 20% but I'll have it for an extra 4 years so I have to live a very long time before I become worse off. My feeling now is that if I continue working full time I won't even survive many years. I can't take the pressure any more.
