Pension Rights/Policy

Discussion in 'Armed Forces Pension Scheme' started by missmoneypenny5445, Aug 18, 2008.

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. Need help with the following. Have a soldier who joined the Army in 1989 and after some 5/6 years service she left the Army during 1995. Thereafter, she re-enlisted during November 1996. However, during her absence Pay 2000 had come into effect and as such her previous service, allegedly, was not going to be added to her new service for her future pension. Accordingly, when the soldier leaves the Army in Feb 2013 she will only have served some 17 years towards pension and as such she will not be entitled to the 22 pension (In effect she will only be entitled to the 12 year type pension). Would be grateful if anyone can clarify if this is right.
  2. Wrong,

    Firstly pay 2000 didn't come into effect until 2001, secondly all regular service over the age of 18 since the introduction of AFPS75 counts towards pension - your friend needs to contact JPAC ASP to ensure this is sorted.

  3. Thanks PW, so though she was out for a short period her pension date should still be from 1989 when she initially joined.
  4. She will have 2 periods of reckonable service 89 - 95 and 96 - 13 - the time out does not count towards pension.

  5. PW i have sent you a PM
  6. And if she re-enlisted before the changeover to the new pension she should have been given the offer to transfer (which she should have refused).

    IMHO, of course. :D
