Changes to LSSA

#1
Does anybody know if there is any truth behind a rumour I heard that LSSA is going to be changed to something else in the near future? Any idea how things will change?

Catch 22 Sparky. It'll mean less money for more time. Me? Cynical?
LSSA will be phased out in its present form and will be replaced by a sliding scale of approx 24/25 levels. eg. 400-500 days - £7.40 per day, 500-600 days - 8.00 per day and so on and so until you hit level 24/25. No more bonuses to work out and you are paid the money at the level you have acrued straight away.

Hope that helps.

These changes all rely on the introduction of JPA, but whose JPA? It is questionable whether when the fist service goes live (crabair) that the other services may have to go live too. If not someone may Redress on the differences between the services ... and win.

Moral of the tale is get your LSSA count maxed asp.

No worries Steward, it happened to me eight times in a row on one thread - jeez did I get flak. Seems when you press submit and an an error message comes you press it again (in the meantime your post is posted and so on and so on). What was funny was the guy who immediately got on my case did exactly the same thing so there was a little face saving....

Steward is just trying to up his post count.

The new LSSA system will indeed have 20+ levels but the first three are the same as the ones in at the moment. They will then go up one level per 365 days served away. The current issue is that so many punters have hit top band that there is nowhere to go so a new scale was needed.

I can't think who will be the superstar getting to level 20 (20 yrs deployed service???) in one lifetime. The navy are getting some system based on 3 days counting as 1 for days at sea I think (do not quote me on that though).

I heard there was only 14 levels. Unless the top ten, as has been said are for the Navy and their triple time. Even with our current commitment level it would be hard to get to 14/22 years of service.

I remain sceptical, until it I have been properly informed, but we may be better off than with the current bonus scheme. I've always fall a few days short, and having completed a one year long course recently I am pretty much starting again from scratch.

Silly question, but does anyone know why the change is being brought in? I appreciate JPA changing certain issues with claims and pay.

However, why the drop in current the allowance - other than to save a shed load of cash!!!!! ???????

Concerned as I'm off on Tour soon, and still have that morgatage to pay!!

Gasp !

..let me enlighten you because you are about to receive a purple book containing info that you think is not on the on the horizon but you appear not to know about it - spooky.

Read the DINs. Hopefully your SPS types are letting you know that there is a brute called JSP 752 arriving and for most things you are concerned about (travel, NRSA etc etc) the world changes on the arrival of JPA in the RAF in late March...the new Regs affect all Services at the same time for about 60 of the most important allowances - why don't you know about this ?

Major changes are here, LSSA is replaced by LSA, read the JSP or speak to your RAO and learn about it.

:roll:

Or have a look at the Briefing Note, and then check out the rates.

Note: LSA first paid after 100 days away, thereafter rates change every 300 days (e.g. 400, 700, 1000 etc). Those already qualified for LSSA will have 100 days automatically credited.

What about those with over 1200 days LSSA, will they be counted?
If you look at the rates, you will see that there are 14 levels. Therefore using my admittedly simple reasoning that would be broken down as follows:

Level 1 - 101 - 400 days
Level 2 - 401 - 700 days
Level 3 - 701 - 1000 days
Level 4 - 1001 - 1300 days
Level 5 - 1301 - 1600 days
Level 6 - 1601 - 1900 days
Level 7 - 1901 - 2200 days
Level 8 - 2201 - 2500 days
Level 9 - 2501 - 2800 days
Level 10 - 2801 - 3100 days
Level 11 - 3101 - 3400 days
Level 12 - 3401 - 3700 days
Level 13 - 3701 - 4000 days
Level 14 - 4001 + days

As I've alluded to previously, your current LSSA days will be automatically transfered to LSA and will be counted on a 1 for 1 basis. As well as this, you will have an additional 100 days credited to your counter. For example if you are currently on 350 days LSSA this will equate to 450 days LSA.

Hope this clears up any confusion.
