Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.

A very interesting argument and one I am sure many would wish were correct.

Unfortunately, legislation has allowed for retirement ages to be reviewed and increased if required by the government and therefore no breach of contract. NI contributions also cover other things as well as pensions.

Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance.
