Like many Soldiers I found out today I was in the bracket for redundancy under Tranche 3. I have done all the redundancy and pension calculations and weighed the pros and cons. I have also unofficially been informed I may come a crop under PAP 10. Now the cynic in me thinks that if I don't volunteer for redundancy then the unit will take the PAP 10 option and discharge me that way. My question is, given the details below, which option is better financially and is it even possible to be discharged under PAP 10 with my circumstances? Date of enlistment: Sep 1997 18th Birthday: Aug 1998 Reconable service: 14.5 years Rank: Corporal, increment level 7, Substansive since 2005 MTFP: Royal Signals CS Operator Class one Med grading: MLD Perm A4 L3 M6 E2 (Deployable under PJHQ Cat 1) Pension Scheme AFPS 75 Injury: Parachuting accident in 2003 whilst on adventurous training. I am currently in a catch 22 as I will never promote substantively (as I am unable to pass SCLM) But I can still deploy on operations (albeit in Lash or Bastion). Currently under redundancy I am looking at a cash lump sum of £77,505 (incl resettlement grant) and then nothing till I am 60yrs old at which time my pension starts. Would I be better off if i was PAP 10'd? Any advise would be gratefully received.
