Will my teachers’ pension contributions be enough?

Will your teachers’ pension contributions be enough to allow you to retire when you want to? With the increased pension age hitting the news yet again, there has never been a more important time to find out how much you will need on retirement.

teachers' pension contributionsAre you well prepared for retirement?

It is estimated that most people will want an income of around 2/3rds of their pre-retirement income, to allow them to live comfortably. Plans for retirement will obviously vary from person to person, but in a recent survey I did with teachers, the main plans for retirement were travelling, spending time with family/friends and, unsurprisingly, relaxing! What about you? What do you want from retirement? Will your current teachers’ pension contributions allow you to live the life that you want to in retirement?

What age can you retire at?

The other thing that you must consider is what your Normal Pension Age (NPA) is. With the changes in the teachers’ pension scheme in 2015, it means that as the state pension age changes, so does the Normal Pension Age (NPA) for many teachers. Your NPA depends on your exact age and when you started teaching.

 

For many, the state pension age is already 68 and this will only rise. Another group of people in their 40’s is now predicted to have their state pension age put up from 67 to 68, 7 years earlier than planned. This will mean that their NPA may also rise. This trend may well continue.

We must accept that things need to change. With a smaller working population, supporting a growing population of pensioners, we simply cannot make the sums add up. Changes MUST be made to the state pension. There are various possibilities for this, but the government has chosen to go down the route of increasing the state pension age, therefore that is the situation that we must deal with.

 

I don’t think we can rely on the state pension, as well as our teachers’ pension. Who knows what will have happened to it by the time we come to retire. It is vital that we take control of our own situations. We need to be responsible for our own futures, if we want to live full and fun-filled retirements.
