GPs face long wait until retirement as review omits them from age-related 'risk' list


Yep, it's tough. I've been full time all my GP career and approaching 50 soon. I've had 2 meetings with my financial adviser and will get out of the pension scheme at 52 yrs 9 months which is when I switch to the new scheme. After this I would get the arse taxed off me but until that point and with 8 added years (4 years as a locum and abroad mixed in) I have managed to preserve a decent pension deferred to 60. Then I will get a massive monthly saving to try and get another lump sum in another scheme if I ever get to 60. But how and in what form will we be working until then? God only knows.
