Just had a look at the new DIN, I'm now getting nervous. (DIN 01-063) Due to leave in Jun 2016, which is obviously after the intro of the new scheme. The way I have read the DIN it seems that the protection applies to those within 10 yrs of their NPA, which means if you are 45 on 1 April 2012 then you will remain on your current pension. Everyone else, un f*ckin lucky. From what I've seen, my plans for my pension money have just been well and truly shattered.
