This looks worrying if the Telegraph have got this right Public sector pensions: the key questions - Telegraph Q I'm a policeman. Does this mean I'll be walking the beat when I'm 66? No. Uniformed public sector workers such as the police, firemen and the armed forces are excluded from the proposal to raise the retirement age to 66. However, they will still have to work longer. In his report, Lord Hutton recommended a normal pension age of 60 "for those members of the uniformed services armed forces, police and firefighters who currently have a normal pensions age of less than 60". Bugger !
