This my seem like a simpleton question, but, here goes. I am currently on the AFPS75 and took the veng long(?) which would extend my service to 24 years (Apr 14). Now I hit my 22 pensionable next month and as my circumstances have changed I will be/want to hand my notice in on my 22 date with a view to hitting the resettlement trail and leaving as soon as possible thereafter. Question I have, will my pension be paid normally on my termination even though I won't be doing the full 24 and want to leave either on my 23 yr point or just before (if I get set up with a job, early release app)? I don't want to sign off next month if the SPVA won't pay me my pension and lump sum stright off. Any answers are appreciated.
