I would be grateful for any advice on the following: Situation: I am (rapidly) approaching my 60th birthday and will be applying for a preserved part-pension after service 1972-1983. I have been resident outside the UK continuously since 1983, and am a citizen of another country. I have downloaded the appropriate form (AFPS Form 8 not a blue face ffs!) for a shufti. At first glance it looked simple enough, but I am totally confused by Part C regarding recycling of lump-sum payments. I will not be doing that so my response to the two questions which have a YES/NO choice will be N/A. Is that correct? Moving to Part D, I am receiving another pension and can provide the details, but is the LTA % still relevant for someone not resident in the UK? I am obviously quite capable of posing these questions to SPVA but thought I would first pick the brains of those who lurk in this forum. I am keen to get the application right first time and get the ackers flowing when they are due. Any advice appreciated.
