Both my employer and I pay into my pension, both payments being taken directly from my salary.
I get paid on the 25th, but it's usually a week or so until the pension payment is made. That's always irritated me a bit - I don't see why it should take that long, in the age of electronic payments.
In December, we always get paid early - this year it was on the 19th I think. My pension payment still hasn't hit my pension though, so that's over three weeks of the cash sitting somewhere that is of no benefit to me.
Am I being unreasonable to think it should be paid quicker? I'm not sure I can actually do anything about it anyway, other than whinge to my HR department, but does anybody else's take that long?
