Don't know if anyone has covered this in the past. I recently wrote to the Service Personnel & Veterans Agency (SPVA) asking for a pension forecast as I am rapidly approaching my final 2years Service. The forecast I recieved basicaly told me I had no immediate pension available on my discharge date but would have a reserved pension. This, according to SPVA is because when I discharge I would not have completed 22 years Pensionable Service. I re-enlisted and have previous Pensionable Service, in my own tiny mind I thought SPVA would have automatically added the two periods together alas this is not the case. So to anyone who has disjointed Service, YOU have to personally write to SPVA asking for your periods of Pensionable Service to be amalgamated. If you don't do this you will not receive an immediate pension on discharge. I am currently debating whether to drop a line to Soldier/Cfn mag to get this highlighted......but I don't want to be crated so watch out for 'Name and address witheld'!!
