I am approaching 62 and plan to retire a little early and take a modest pension. I am paying on the 2012 CMS scheme and have always paid on time etc. Can anybody advise best way to approach CMS and tell them my income is going down a lot ( possibly to nil for a few months whilst my pension payments get sorted)? I just know they will be difficult and get it wrong….
I would suggest you call them about any coming changes as soon as possible. They will likely ask for evidence of your income changes.
In my opinion, you need to call them as soon as possible and let them know that your income has changed so that they can take action as soon as possible.
