Hi all I'm considering leaving my Reg C at the Initial Pension Point. Trouble is, getting any advice is tricky if one doesn't want to show one's hand too early! Does anyone have any advice to give on: 1. How much notice I really have to give? (I heard anecdotally of some Signals Lt Cols who gave 28 days' notice as that was all that was required under european law) - the less notice the better, as I get my extra pay chopped on PVR, so 7 or 12 months would be a financial headache. 2. To whom do I write to give the good news? Any advice on letter format? 3. With regard to the posting plot, when is the best time to do it? Looking into the future, my last full tour will end about a year before 37, so is there an optimum point to do it without making myself a pain in the arse for MCM? 4. Is there any chance that if I give, say, 7 months' notice prior to my IPP date, that they would let me go (ie kick me out) early and therefore forfeit my pension? (you never know!) Should I therefore leave resigning until after my IPP date has passed? 5. Any and all other advice will be gratefully received. The basic concept of ops is to get out with minimal hassle and cost to myself, but also without pi$$ing off MCM and my Corps who I have no bone to pick with at all. I'm not averse totally to causing annoyance, but an amicable separation is always preferable (mind you, it'd be a first for me come to think of it). Thanks for taking the time to help someone who's glad it's (almost) all over.
