Im 46 & have two small company private pensions which my employer & myself contributed to for 7 years. I have not worked for 3 years due to PD and recently decided to cash them in.
I was offered a very small fraction of cash paid up front and a pittance paid yearly until the age of 65. I have made enquiries, but basically told that the Pensions Company can offer me what they think suitable, due to age/illness.
If I waited until the age of 55 however, I could take the full amount in one lump sum, which is 9 years to wait! Im moving home to plan for the future while I am still able to, the cash would help towards this, 9 years is a long time to wait with PD. Very disappointed.
Has anyone with young onset PD experienced the same?
