  1. Hi;

    Heard a rumour that the powers that be were looking at AFPS 75 again and how they could change it i.e. save money!! The rumour was along the lines of removing the immediate pension. Anyone heard anything concrete??

    If they are I'm out of here!!
  2. I am not sure journos can get AFPS75...
  3. Bye then!
  4. Chances are that this is the AFPS 2015 that is mooted to be proper pump. What you will note from any literature that mentions it is that any pension that has already been accumulated, whether 75 or 05 scheme, will be preserved i.e. you will have whatever/ 22 of the 75/05 plus whatever/ 22 of the new pension on completion of service. How this will actually translate, i don't know..
