I have been contributing to a stakeholder pension with Scottish Widows and put a lump sum away each April of approximately £2800 per annum. It will be the 3rd year of paying but I'm wondering whether I'm doing the right thing. I have been working for the NHS full time since July 2007 and I am being told it would be safer to make additional payments into the NHS pensions scheme. Would be interested in opinions on this board to say what I should do come this April.:confused:

    safer yes but not necessarily the best option but it could be. It depends on how and when you want to retire.
