MEDICAL PENSIONS

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by trailape, Jul 4, 2007.

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. A friend of mine is being medicaly dishcharged he would like to Know what the score is with his pension after 21 years service

    thanks in advance for any advice given
     
  2. Ideally, it is his Chief Clerk who should be able to advise him in the first instance and anything I write comes with a huge caveat!

    What is his rank and I will check the tables.

    Read here for further background:

    Medical discharge

    or search the fora.

    Litotes
     
  3. Thinking about it, it seems a little strange discharging him at the 21 year point when he will be out at 22 years....

    or did he join well before he was 18?

  4. Cheers for that
    He joined as a junior with me in 1984 so signed on in 86 and will leave as a SSgt

  6. You beat me to it, LJS.

    Your figures are for 2006; mine for 2007 show £11343 for a 21 yr SSgt.

    I don't think that this will be index-linked until the soldier reaches 60.

    As far as I know, he would then receive a further pension based on his disability and certain other factors, but I am at the limit of my knowledge.

    I would ask why this SNCO is being discharged rather than be allowed to serve on to 22 yrs? There may be very good reasons in that he could be incapacitated or that such action may affect other grants/benefits, but I would have thought that it would have been in the interests of the soldier to allow him to complete a full career and take full advantage of the resettlement package.

  7. VMT Litotes, agreed, it does sound strange discharging him at the 21 year point, 20% disability is the minimum assesment to be eligiable for a Medical Pension, anything below would attract a Lump Sum only.
     
  8. But if he gets a 20% (£27.00 per week) War pension, this would make his full army pension tax free, so thats a mouthly income of over a £1000 tax free.
     
  9. Thanks for all your help I have passed it all on to my mate
     
  10. 20% disablement not a % of a pension.
