Geoff In any society there are people whose job earns them far less than others. Its unfortunate but life isn't fair - it never has been and never will be (except in communist countries where everybody earns the same). Should professional footballers earn what they earn compared to nurses and teachers? Of course not, but that's the world we live in. Should you earn anything like the Bailiff earns (which I would add is a mere fraction of what partners in local law firms earn, and which he has given up!)? Of course not. If you haven't been able to afford to buy a house before retirement, then its clear that you wouldn't be able to afford to do so afterwards. However, as Sceptic has suggested, your pension package is exceptionally good. You might not "earn" as much in retirement relative to what you earn in employment, but you will be massively better off compared to any other non-house owner who has done the same sort of jobs as you have in the private sector. That's probably of little comfort to you, but its worth saying.
