End of Over 37 Package

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. Just heard from a very reliable cource that the over-37 package is to be revised: claimants will have to be in their last 3 years of Service or have started resttlement training.....

  2. Connecting with the CEA thread, it is going to be difficult to square both the abolition of CEA and the abolition of the over-37 package.

    Either Service personnel have domestic stability and no CEA or move around and claim it. To remove both will mean that longer serving soldiers and officers will be required to drag their families from Garrison to Garrison every 2 years or so, re-schooling their kids along the way.

    Although I speculate, my gut feeling is that this measure (especially if taken in conjunction with loss of CEA) will have an enormous negative impact on retention beyond 37.
  3. If your on a notice engagement, and in your last three years of service of a full carear, your going to be over 37 anyway, surely?
  4. I have found that the only reliable source is Heinz.
