Electing to remain in post after 22 years?

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by old_bloke, Mar 28, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What I think I heard was in line with the changes to the pension in 2007.
    After which Soldiers will also be able to remain past 22 years and elect to remain in their current posting?

    Is this true?

    So Sam Shiny arrse decides to stay in Cyprus for 32 years as a Lance Jack as it's great but the rest of his Corps/Regiment loses out on thet one cushy posting in their service.

    Anybody with real information out there (about this subject)!

    Every Arm & Corps has been given the option to opt for a 27 yr career. I can't remember the name of the project now. But each director has been given the choice and has replied to AG.

    I do know that the RLC has opted NO except for one particular trade.
  3. isn't it something like variable engagement VEng or some acronym like "necst".

    how about Over-Length Direct/Flexible Annual Re-engagement Term (O.L.D.F.A.R.T)

    hey this is fun!

    Flexible Annual Term With Accrued Super-Tax & Extraneous Rank
