Have posted elsewhere with regards this too.
I stand to have a difference of 10 grand lump and 3 grand a year pension between the schemes if i have a full career
If we get a straight answer on serving 'til 55 it may be worth the change. (or becoming the friendliest AGC clerk that Corps has ever seen!)
You seem like a clever boy! Thought 'bout teaching in AGC? Niteracy and lumeracy for the scrots or new stylee EFP cant be that hard can it?
Even the welfare sector of the AGC.
To be honest JB68 any job that will give you those extra 6 years is worth looking at aint it.
You aint too bad already tho' if a its only a further 6 to do 'til 55.
Hey you aint the ASM from PAAB are ya?
Have worked out that I would have to serve passed my 48th birthday, and reach the ripe old of 65, in order to benefit from switching to the new system. I would still have to reach the ripe old of 65 to actually receive the full benefit!! Lump sum plus an immediate pension on retirement, or wait and hope to reach 65? Hmmm, let me think.
The Government, sorry Parliament, doesn't introduce a new pension system because it is going to benefit you!!
