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. Having tried everything I am here again trying to get any info I can. My hubby's last day is 31/8/12. Medical discharge P8. He has a number of conditions, including NFCI. He got his pension forecast yesterday, a lump sum and no pension til 65! He is 40!! We are both really confused, is the lump sum the only thing he will get? He is awaiting a decision from AFCS which we expect any day now. He has a number of seperate conditions but yet has been given discharge on Tier One! Basically, they are saying he is ok. Does anyone know if he would be entitled to anything else? We had hoped he would get some kind of pension, obviously not. He falls just outside the 18/40 rule, being 40 but only 17.5 years service! The lump sum is NOT life changing, didnt expect anything less.We are really worried about long term now.
