    lucky yeh wont have to work till 65 to get access to it.
    I think mine is 55, although ive not really checked. The plan has always been to have sufficient non-pension investments to cover the gap from 40s-55 or whenever the pension age is.

    23 and about £8k. About a third of that I've saved since October as I currently have a decent and stable income.

    thats great if it works for your company but I think in the likes of nhs if yeh leave before 65 you dont get the pension.

    so youd be covering the gap from 40s-95

    You think wrong

    If you leave before the pension age then the amount you receive is reduced based upon your number of contributing years. You cant just lose a pension.

    Under the HSE Scheme all new hires** joining the Scheme have; A minimum retirement age of 65 years. No compulsory retirement age (subject to suitability and health requirements). A minimum of 2 years' service is required for eligibility for benefits (no minimum service is required however for death in service benefit).

    I invested all my savings in books, so I have many pages of wealth but zero savings in money.

    Good luck to you suckers when the banks crash.

    Yes, that means you cannot begin to claim from the scheme until you are 65. It doesn't mean you have to work with them, or work at all, until you are 65.

    Do the new personal saving allowances help/hinder you in your circumstances?

    Probably a lot of people who were higher rate earnings who had 20% interest deducted at source but then didn't bother to declare the other 40% whereas the new rules probably mean fewer are likely to do that?
