OAP... but forced to work

11th July 2003 at 01:00
REGARDING teachers' retirement age, has the Government forgotten they are also raising the statutory retirement age of women, in stages, to 65?

I am a woman who is now 50 and due to receive my state pension at 62. If the Government has its way, with this latest idea, I may have to work three years after being an OAP to receive my teachers' pension!
