Public sector strike: The generosity of public sector pensions has been laid bare after official calculations showed that a typical teacher can expect to retire with a taxpayer-funded scheme worth more than £500,000.
As a public servant I worry that drawing attention to our pensions might be counter-productive.
Having recently taken up a very minor part time job for Her Majesty I get to work out how much my civil service pension is worth.
As an example:
At the age of fifty according to my bean counter if I forgo £175 p.a. (yes per year) for the next fifteen years (total £2650) I will get an annual index linked pension of £1750 p.a.
Sometimes I feel I have been in the wrong job for too many years.
