Re: Claim Your UK State Pension Early

I can't see any way you can claim the state pension early, and if you did no doubt it would be abated so you got less. I suspect that what your friend told you is misleading.

As far as I understand it you cannot receive your state pension before the due date. He is probably receiving some other benefit and doesn't realise it.

I do understand that Julie, but what I cannot understand is why you would close your mind to alternative ideas that could make things better, it makes me think some people just enjoy their lot being someone else's fault.

I quite agree Julie one contemptible compassion-less human being.

I thought it was your private pension from April 2015? You can definitely get 25% tax free.

I think your friend is either mistaken, or telling lies, you can not get a State Pension until you become of age, which was 60 for women, and 65 for men, but for people born after 1950 it is now later.

Re: Claim Your UK State Pension Early

Just a thought do some professions get it early I seem to recall my uncle when he retired at 55 from the police got his pension, wasn't enough to live on so he worked too but he got something.

VM personal attacks aren't called for, surely we can all have our own opinions.

Re: Claim Your UK State Pension Early

And yet the attack which is what it was is tolerated on Steve ? I don't think VM started it really. But I am not suggesting any attack is right. It's just sad to me someone who tells us they have more than most is so unkind to those who haven't got as much as him. We don't all have same advantages in life and the same luck.
