Hi All, Thanks in advance for help. I am a nurse and just been diagnosed with early onset of Alzheimer's at 53. Work would like to pension me off and i am worried about money. I am married. Can anyone help with what i may be able to claim if they do pension me off. I have only worked at the university as a nurse for 3 years, so will only get back what i have paid into it, as the other pension you had to be in it for 5 years and i have not been. We have children, but they are all grown up and moved home, except for my son at 28 yrs old, who still lives at home. He will be the one who will be looking after me to be honest as and when i need it. We couldn't afford or want hubby to leave his job. Please any help or information will be helpful. Could i get back all the other pensions i have paid into as a nurse in the past ??. I have spoken to NMC and they have advised that as and when i am ready to leave work they will support me as the governing body, but if i dont want to leave then they said that work have to support me to stay as long as i can. I am not sure i want all the hassle and pressure of being assessed and someone over my shoulder all day every day. Just really need to know where i stand.
