    What to do?

    What to do? 13th Sep 17 at 10:12 PM
    I current have 2 separate legal and general pensions from 2 previous employers with approx £600-700 in each, I am currently enrolled into a local government pension service with my new employer.
    Is it worth me paying in to these other two pension pots privately via direct debit so I have more to retire on?
    I'm 30 so still have a good few years to work but I feel if I don't set myself up now I won't be able to enjoy my retirement.
    TIA

    I'm presuming 68, I've not had my login details back to check it all. It only got set up in July when I started new job

    If it's 68, and if you might want to retire earlier while deferring drawing your LGPS pension until you are 68, then there's a case for building up a personal pension of some sort to fund that early retirement.
