Early release & resettlement

#1
I know I can find out from work Monday morning but..........

If you apply for early release are you still entitled to resettlement? I'm looking at signing off at the end of the month but want to be out by Aug/Sept if possible. I've already done my 22 years and am now on VEng.

Cheers.

Fally,

You are in the same situation I was. I signed off in Oct 2010 (I was also on VEng and within 6 months of my 22 year point) and looked into the possibility of early release. Both my unit and career manager at MCM Div were happy but it was explained to me that if I chose to exercise the option then I could potentially lose my IRTC grant, my GRT time and terminal leave. I'm not sure what would happen though if you applied for early release having already used your IRTC grant and GRT. I was also advised that I could only apply if I had a firm job offer or a guaranteed place on a uni course.

Good luck

Grab your resettlement before you apply, as early terminations have been known to lose their resettlement and terminal leave as a consequence.

You lose resettlement if your application for early release is accepted. The best thing to do is smash out resettlement then apply.

What you looking at doing? I've been to the job fayre and am pretty much decided, you?

You've sent him your mobile number with a request that he rings to discuss the issue. Cunningly disguising your real intention, which is to repeatedly phone him during silent hours and howl down the phone whilst shotgunning tins of Brasso.

Haven't you?

No, fucko. I was actually trying to be helpful for once, using the bollocks knowledge I have earned over the last few years.

You granny shagger.

I'm sure you are still technically entitled as you have done your time to qualify for it. The problem is actually getting it, as by asking for early release then starting resettlement activities you are effectively putting in your request then saying 'See ya'! It will probably depend on whether your current post can be gapped or filled at short notice.

It's a similar problem for those who get 2 years VEng but then sign off and need to do resettlement in 1 year instead of 2.

I wish you all the best and hope you get to use every one of your GRT days and warrants.

Edited to add: Just re-read your OP, that's both your situations then! Double good luck! :)

Does anyone know if I can get early release and then do a security course with learning credits?
SLC (the lower one) has to be used while in service, ELC (£2000 max for 80% of course fee) can be used 3 times (once per year) up to 10 years after you're out.

If you're at Merville watch yourself with the retirded maj in the resettlement centre, he's a useless condescending cnut. I watched him with a lad in front of me, got to me found I had a job lined up then proceeded to slag off the lad before me then rattle through his spiel so fast as to be pointless...... "He's not a lot of use Turkish".

Only if you tell me what day we get paid this month.

Fals, sorry, but after nearly 22 years of being a jumpy person in that Army thing, you are sounding like a kid who needs to know what time you should run your 1.5k in and what kit you should take to Catterick/Harrogate.

I've already told you, I will find out for you. Stop being a big ******* girl.

P.S. Spaz really did shag a granny.
