Aged 58, Graeme Craig is considering his retirement options. He is a member of a final salary scheme from a previous employment and this is due to start paying out a pension on his 60th birthday.

He explains: “Previously I was considering delaying taking this pension. But last year I was made redundant, so this has forced me to re-evaluate my options.” He is now working as a freelance marketing consultant, but this has reduced his income.

Craig adds: “To be honest I am quite happy not to be working full-time at present. Hopefully, I can continue working in a part-time capacity. This will certainly be easier once my pension starts paying out.”
