Typical questions

I want to work fewer hours without giving up work altogether. Can I do that?

Yes, you have several options:

The senior scheme is an option we offer members who want to work fewer hours during the last five years before reaching state retirement age. Read more about the senior scheme.

If you are eligible for early retirement benefits, you can take partial early retirement and still work up to 29 hours a week. In that case, you will receive reduced early retirement benefits as you will also receive a salary. Read more about early retirement.

When you reach state retirement age, you can work and still receive your state pension. In that case, you will receive lower state pension benefits than if you do not work. See how much you are allowed to earn while also receiving state pension.
