We who are serving are taking 3 years of what is effectively pay cuts as we get no pay rise and as already stated above (2 years ago), any increase in pay (and pension) is now linked to the lower CPI so we lose out. The important thing to remember though is that we still get a reasonable pension.
The ones to feel sorry for are those under 45 when the new terms come into force - they are the ones who will lose out, not your brother.

I don't understand how your brother's pension is being cut. The switch from RPI to CPI means his inflation-indexed increase will be slightly lower than it would otherwise have been. So, his pension should go up; just not quite as much as it would have done.
Or have I missed something?It was like that when I got here.

The only 'adjustments' that I am aware of are those which take place at state pension age but even that hasn't risen to 70 - yet.The Forces Pension Society - Fighting for the forces and their Families
