I have just received my new, green, version of the OTT. This time my details and length of service are correct. However, I was puzzled when I noticed that under the new scheme my pension payments took a bit of a nose dive. I found out that this is because the 74 scheme takes a mid rank wage as its basis whilst the 05 approach takes a current salary approach. As I am at the junior end of my current rank I take a dip. However, I intend to serve until the end of my engagement and somewhere between now and then my salary scale tips in balance of the 05 scheme. I share this with the forum since the OTT only takes into account the wage you are earning now not the wage you are likely to be earning when you retire/pvr. Grateful for any professional SPS comments.
