Dread to think about the state pension when I reach pension age, then again, I could not be entitled to state pension,no idea,as I pay into a private pension.

Well, they keep moving the goalposts on my state pension age - I’m just hoping they don’t move them anymore as I get nearer to the goal!

I don't envy anyone who has to scrape by on £168 per week. Luckily. I have a generous final salary pension that shields me from having to skrimp and save.

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

but you dont get a full state pension as they deduct monies from it because you get a private pension and for a double whammy your also taxed on the private pension!

This is very informative and calculates your entire working contribution. State pensions vary , there were some options to pay more I believe in the eighties that increase your final state pension.

That's not so, Blackbird. I get the full state pension but pay tax on the total of my state and private pensions combined.
