From John Storey.
I THINK I was right about calling our States Members inept in a previous letter. We now learn (JEP, 28 January) that the retirement age may have to be increased.
In the financial turmoil that the world is going through, that is the age-group that will suffer the most if and when redundancies have to be made.
What will happen to them? Will they have to wait until they get to the new retirement age that the States have set to get a pension, with no job prospects in the pipeline?
For those lucky enough to carry on working until the new retirement age, I assume they will be paying social security contributions up until they retire, so will their pension increase to reflect this?
