Old Age Pension....Entitlement.

A relative has just reached the age of entitlement for his pension, 65 I believe.

The idle bastid has never had a job in the 35 years I have known him, and according to others only one job before that lasted a few months.

According to Mrs. V he receives the full entitlement, £150 per week, I haven't looked it up, but it sounds about right.

How the frig does that work?, I've put 40 years worth of contributions into the pot, if I had worked until 65, I would have put 50 years of contributions in.

I'll get, I assume, the same pension as someone who has given, or done, nothing.

Socialist sheitepots.

For every week he received benefit he gets an NI credit. This was the main reason I signed on while job hunting after redundancy it maintains one's NI record and hence the pension entitlement.

The question I would ask is how has he managed to con the job centre into letting him draw benefit for all that time. It is all too easy to be sent for a job interview with a potential employer and bugger it up (deliberately) so that no job is forth coming. Should those drawing benefit, other than the genuinely sick and disabled, not be required to work for the dole Job Seekers Allowance.

To give credit to the benefits system he hasn't been getting money for quite a few years due to his refusal to go for interviews.

You wouldn't employ him if you saw him.

What's he been living on if he hasn't been getting any money?

Well I worked for 41 years, mainly self-employed paying my stamp as I went. Next year age 65 I get my pension which will go to a PCP for a new Giulietta.

I worked a long time for that!

And I feel sorry for the wife by the way, I know a lazy horrible tosspot like that.

It's the way of the system. Worked for or not he is entitled.

The main difference will be that in most (but not everyone's ) cases those that worked up to 40 years should have an additional private pension on top.

Small consolation perhaps but there's always a number who take advantage. Many old people rely on the state pension.

I don't particularly begrudge people their pension, (choke) as you say it's the system that we hope will support us, if we need it to.

And I can take some solace, I know I shouldn't, in the fact that he's never had anything in his life, holidays, cars, or any of the material things we enjoy, because he's never had the money. What money he got off the state was handled by his wife for the housekeeping.

The thing is, I have no idea what my pension plan is.

I've worked all my adult life, with a few blips that probably take out about a couple of years worth of meaningful pension contributions.
I have no idea what my current pension is worth; all I know is that the NHS now take a ****-load more than they did when I started...and it's worth a hell of a lot less, unless I work until I reach the age of 67.

I realistically doubt I will live to 67.

Knowing what you did before you retired I assume you'll get or are getting an additional pension income from your former employer?

I think you have said you are retired from the police force but are you doing something else or just waiting?
As in deciding what to do.

I kind of fear retirement. Pensions I have but I fear they'll be ****.

I should have spent money buying property instead of cars and divorce.

Don't kick yourself about property.

I've got some. Not doing so well right now.

It will still be something towards retirement though I suspect. Even if you just consider it a 'holding place'.
