Hi, I joined public in 1997 and between career break and job share I currently have approx 20 years service. I would love to completely change career now at age 50. My intention is to apply for career break and retrain. My question is, could I draw down my pension at 55 but continue to work in private sector . Or if I was to gain other employment in public sector, how would my pension be calculated? Would I get benefit of the 20 years at my current salary of €60k and a separate calculation of pension if I was to get a different job at a lower salary?
