Conductor, you are whining because you earn enough to have to pay 40% tax.
Do you seriously expect any sympathy?
The pension you receive will be paid to you for the rest of your life. NOt a bad deal. its backed by HMG and you'll get it with no further effort from you at all.
I'm pretty certain you don't pay 40% tax on it, but you might pay 40% tax on *part* of your overall income. You do NOT pay National Insurance Contributions on your pension. Its likely that next year you'll have a personal allowance of £10k.
If you are getting paid an income from employment and the 40% tax rate is such a God-awful burden for you to bear, make a personal pension contribution which will give you tax relief at your marginal rate of 40%.
Alternatively, give some £ to BLESMA, H4H or the ABF and get that nasty 40% burden relieved as above.Bravo Bravo sets himself a depressingly low standard which he consistently fails to achieve.

Unfortunatley from this computer I cannot give Dingerrs posts the Likes they deserve.
One thing that I noticed in this area (BFG) a long time ago is that the only people who moan about the lack of money or high taxation are those who have little if anything to moan about. Those who do not earn much don't moan. As has been mentioned, sympathy is in the dictionary somewhere between--------
PS There must be lots of people who would love to struggle on a Conductors pension. Life is hell.

OK a quick question regarding the new tax allowance going up to just over 9K...am i right in thinking if my annual pension is going to be just over 10K am I best in telling the tax man that my pension is my main income then any job i get as my second income.......or my pension is my second income??? Does it make any difference...Ive heard conflicting views on this.Barclays Fantasy football Premiership ARRSE Champion 2007/2008 season.

I suspect the OP has even less to whinge about if he went on to be selected for a LE Commission and managed to end up as a Maj/Lt Col. If that is the case and he retired recently, his pension may be close to attracting the top whack of tax and therefore he really does need to show a little humility and back off. Mate, the only things certain in this life are the Taxman and the Grim Reaper*!
