hello i work for a city council and they are going through a series of redundencies at the moment. on the redundency calculator they ask for your age. is this right and why should my age affect what i am entitled to??? i have been in my job for the same amount of time as someone older than me i should be offered the same amount of redundency!!!
this is ageism!!! i thought this was against the law now? shoudlnt national and local governments be setting an example here and paying people on their length of service only? but the law allows this to happen. can anyone explain??

I am being made redundant Sept 09 and will pay around £10K Tax on my Redundacy payment.
I am 51 so cannot access my final salary pension until I am 55.
Can I make an AVC (Additional Voluntary Contribution) into my Pension, or take out an ISA, for upto this amount.
This way at least I get the money albeit in 4 years time.
Surely better for me than the Tax man to have it?
