No, because I'd end up in the NHS in a wee GP surgery somewhere treating chavs.
 
#3
It would have to be a very decent package in order for me to consider it.
 
#5
They would have to make up my pension, so the offer would have to be very, very good.
 
#6
I'm off after completing 20 years, they can keep the pension, I'll be working until I'm 55 anyway so it's not a big issue. Would have been nice to take it obviously, but I'll manage without it.

In a heartbeat after snatching their hand off
 
#8
It would have to be very good, with only 3 years left..........

I'd rip their arm off and hit em round the head with the soggy end especially as DRLC has shafted the trade big style.

It would be a case of follow the Strima shaped blur.

Where do I sign? In fairness I've done my 22 so the pension is in the bag, I'd be more likely get a nice letter telling me I had 12 months left.

Don't be daft mate, they owe you. I'm sure that you can hack the remaining 2 yrs? That's a lot of wonga to lose pal.

Tax question would have to come into it as I pay a lot of tax on my pension. Obviously applicable if you get a good salary when you leave but all needs to be taken into account.

An £11k pension isn't what appears in the bank!! Tax is also a good reason to take maximum commutation too.

Principal reason to take the maximum commutation, is that it's likely to be the one time in your life that you'll have that much cash in one place and not paying a healthy chunk of it in interest.

Money's always better in your pocket that HMG.

If my normal money kicked in at my 22 year point and I had to rough it in Civvy street until then well watch my tracer, I'm off! Only got 11 months left anyway so think I can grin and 'bear' it until then, little dubious about officials offering packages in the Army anyway, always seem to loose. Tell me nobody actually went for the new pension, did they?

I know Nige, and I know what he is doing is in his and his family's best intrest, for them!

Do ARRSE members really think that he would do this without talking to his friends and family.

I dont think so.

The grass is always greener down under.
 
#19
I dont think I would after all why leave a perfectly good well paid job, Im not tied in, alot of people think the grass is greener but I know it isnt, I think that if you are going to leave it should be for the right reasons and money isnt the best reason
 
#20
Job satisfaction is the main motivator for me. Would rather take a lower paid job and enjoy it than a highly paid one with no quality of life. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't say no to a large wad of cash (Preferably accompanied by an even larger stash of porn) but all money would mean to me would be freedom!!
