    Evening all.

    Just some feedback please gents if you'd be so kind. I currently work for a local council and I have been paying into a pension scheme. When I move on to the window in the new year. This is going to stop. I'm going to have to look at a private option, the only other alternative would be stashing money every week in a account. I'm currently 36 and have always been aware of the importance of having something tucked away.

    Any advice of a good option or anyone care to share what they have lined up?

    Have a good evening

    Well I reckon I will be working well past retirement age to keep money coming in. Or if I got off my **** a bit, I could build a business, employ and take a cut. I'll tell you what though, there is no way I'm going to just say that's it and stop working and let the vultures pick up my jobs. I'll probably have my son on board I reckon and hopefully he'll have a bit more nouse than me and make it a proper business instead of an income like I have seen it. Just wish I had a bit more drive when I was younger.

    I like things simple. Employing doesn't appeal to me, my head would be in a constant spin trying to keep up with it all. I'll leave all that to my nipper if he comes on board :)
