    Military Pensions
    The Government have altered how your Military Pension is affected by annual inflation. They have changed the link from RPI to CPI which will decrease the value of your pension year on year. Below are some examples, which have been supplied by the Forces Pension Society, illustrating the cost of the change from RPI to CPI:
    a. Disabled double amputee 28 year old Corporal £587,000 by age 70.
    b. 40 year old Sergeant Royal Marines £212,000 by age 85.
    c. 40 year old Squadron Leader £319,000 by age 85.

    Please sign the petition which is very easy to do, simply click on the link:

    IMPORTANT
    To help make the petition grow please pass this information on to friends and college's. Support from both ex military and none military personnel for the petition is important as we believe the pension is a strong part of the Military Covenant which our Government is signed up to.

    The Government slots the Armed Forces Pension Scheme as just another Public Pension - civil servants etc. The appear to put to one side the Military Covenant and the fact that payments to widows and injured young military folk are losing out. I hate to say it but it looks like they just don't care......but still shout out 'what a great job you do!'

    They need to honour their promises on all Govt pensions not just the Armed Forces

    I do agree ...but I'm only putting the argument forward for the Armed Forces. I think the Police, Civil Service and Council workers can and must look after their own interests. In fact I listened to the Police Rep getting fives minutes on national news today.
