Pension Payments

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by ticketyboo, Dec 7, 2010.

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. Anyone have an idea of how long after your termination date does your 22 year lump sum go into account and after doing the JPA pension thing should I be badgering the RAO dept before my date to make sure it's done correctly
  2. ticketyboo,

    The DS answer is up to 30 days, in reality it can be a matter of days. I would suggest that at the three month point you should have all your GRT and terminal leave booked and signed off. If your RAO dept is any good they should have someone nominated to handle discharges, find out who yours is and have a chat with them to get a timeline sorted for paperwork and such.

    Good luck.

  3. I left the army on 6 November this year - my gratuity was in the bank 10 days later and my first pension payment was in the bank on 28 November. Pretty slick, considering that they fucked up my pay quite regularly for over 30 years.
