Still Confused By New State Pension Age Rules?

Ray Stewart Business, General 1 Comment

A number of people have asked me for clarification about the new retirement ages and how to work out exactly when their pensions may be expected to start (assuming the Country isn’t bankrupt by then – but that’s another post altogether!).

The Tax Office have acknowledged these genuine concerns [private_basic]and have produced a helpful calculator on their website for all to use.  You just need to enter if you are a male or female and your date of birth and out pops a report of your personal pensionable date, and how many years of NIC contributions you need to have made to qualify for it.

You can find the calculator here

I have tried it a few times and the results seem reliable – so I hope it helps you if this is one thing you are concerned about (like me!).

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
