I  plan to give up work in Nov21 when I am 65. State retirement age is 66.
Never having retired before (obviously!) I was wondering about two matters
Firstly if I retire 7 months into the next tax year, can I still make contributions to a personal DC pension up to the  amount allowed based on only 7 months salary?
Secondly for NI will 2021/22 count as a qualifying year as I will have worked for only 7 months of it. Also can I pay voluntary contributions for part of the following year up to my 66th birthday and will that be prorataed

Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are incapable of forming such opinions.
