The assertion of saying "didn't you retire at 48" was implying some falsehood in my story of which there is none. I simply corrected his understanding.

Re: Taking workplace pension at 55

I retired at 60 but I wish I had done it earlier unfortunately, while you can take your superannuation pension from the age of 55, it is only at 60 that it becomes tax free. I was a self funded retiree until 65 when I was then eligible for a part state pension (means tested).

That remains my situation now though the bastards increased the taper last year which gave me less state pension so I just increased my super pension to compensate.

I would recommend taking your pension and retiring as early as you can afford, it is your money after all. I live very comfortably in my opinion.

No you dork!
I'm talking as a person who is still working and is eligible to dip into their pension as I mentioned in my post.
Can't you read?!!
