No they are not-the idea is not to look at how much you put in, but how much you are likely to get out. even though annuity rates have dropped, yor life expectancy has increased dramatically since you took it out and your pension will have to last longer. You also get tax relief so stop moaning and buy me a pint! thanks for the lift the other day.

Really, Linda? What was jOhn's lifestyle like when he took it out then??

(jOhn, look at what they forecast you will get when you retire, not what it's worth now.)

jOhn,

I will qualify for my pension next year, albeit early (I'm being made redundant along with 1,000 others). I really grudged when I started paying in at 21 (27 years ago!), but it looks like an attractive cushion now.

Noreen-John is already 102 years of age and well into retirement -the fact he has not drawn his pension yet is because he can't find the paperwork.

Yes they are jOhn!

I paid into on for heavens knows how long and then had to cash it in in a hurry as its value was approach zero quickly.

In fact with the various scams and havoc banks and insurance companies have played with my very hard-earned cash over the years (it WOULD have been worth more under the proverbial mattress and I CAN prove that), I am going to revert to buying rare vintage musical instruments again which do still seem to be an investment! Some of these scoundrel organizations are the modern-day equivalent of the old highwaymen but without the scruples. (I'm sure Linda's is an exception, at least I'd prefer her as my bank manager!)

Hurrah for G.A.S.!

Peace

In the "good old days" you worked for 50 years and got less than 10 years pension before you died ie 5yrs working for 1yr pension.

Until recently we were looking at 40 years at work followed by 20 years of pension ie 2 yrs working for 1 yr pension.

Not surprisingly,even in isolation, this is causing problems.

darling moo-good luck with the instrments-th problem is if 60 million Britons bought vintage instruments to supplement their living into old age then their may be a flood on the market and the value would fall. There are always individal solutions, but frankly the only one that I can think of that will work is that you take out a pension, or start saving on the very first day you get a job, and you don't stop until you want to retire.
