My concern may not be typical, but since pension changes that mean you have to have 35 qualifying years in order to get the larger state pension, I made sure I stayed working an extra 2 years to get 37 years (assuming things would change again), only to discover very recently that those whose employers opted out of SERPS at any time are not included. This a recent addition and affects me again, as well as all the other changes to my detriment.

I retired at the age of 58 knowing that time I would get my pension at 63 and 1 month with weeks of the conservative government coming to power they added 10 months to my pension age. I was born in August 1953 if I had been born 4 months earlier I would have had my pension for 3 years now. I have paid 40 years of full NI just to be robbed of the money I have put into the system at the last hurdle. I am waiting for a politician to tell me this is a fair decision
