I'll be 60 in 2012 when I will have about 37/80 pension. Should I hang on for a bit longer to boost my pension or should I go? I could ask to go part time to supplement my pension as I still have a mortgage to pay until 2014 so a bit extra would help. I am feeling very tired these days and am cheesed off with the new specs I have to teach but I am in good health and never take a day off. I'd like to hear advice from those who have retired and continued part time and from those who have retired completely. I do realise that the extra pension will continue for years to come so it is a big loss if I don't get the full 40 years.
