UK Pension Alert: Do you have a NHS, teachers’, local government, police, fire and armed forces pension scheme? Then read on.
There are things you definitely need to know about your UK Civil Service Pension Scheme. Why? Because the UK government is doing their best to handle the fact that they have promised you way too much.
> Your scheme is not a final salary scheme anymore, but an average salary scheme
> Your scheme is not adjusted for inflation as it used to, but at a much lower rate
> Your scheme is changing the age at which you can take your pension from age 60 to 67
