I know I have said in the past its simple to ignore posts that are of no interest, but if I see another post heading about Brian's pension I shall throw up.

I was thinking of doing a thread about my company pension but it would be a bit boring
Retired at 60 (two years ago)
Took maximum lump sum (re tax)
Pension paid to my bank every month
Increased by 1% in April (and only contact was a change of address and bank)
..............................THE END!

Same here, very boring pension
. Retired 3 years ago
. Pension paid monthly into my bank
. Increase notification every March, 2.2% this year
. P60 notification in May each year
. No other contact since retiring

Thats it!
Oh how I wish I had a more intrusive provider like Brian!

Yes, it's all pretty boring..  Retired at 56.  I get a financial summary of the main pension fund every year, and notification of any increases.  Various banks send me junk mail.  In the winter, I use it to light the fire.

I'm not paying 5p for that little bag, put the stuff in my hat
