Hi to all, Firstly I'm new on ARRSE so Hi and please feel free to point me in the right direction if this isn't the correct place to be posting here.. I am in a bit of a dilemma with regards to my Resettlement Grant so I'm hoping somebody can shed a bit of light as to where I stand here, please forgive me the long post but I think it will better help if I kind of explain the situation, so here goes... Basically I signed off last year and have literally just left as of the 11th July 13, I sorted out my Pens 1 fom on the JPA site as you do pretty much as soon as my paperwork was confirmed and I did this with plenty of time. To better explain my cercumstance I joined 9th July 98 at 17 so my Man Service started as of my 18th birthday (17th Jan 99), I served for just shy of 8 years on the 75 scheme and discharged 9th June 06. I then rejoined on the 05 scheme 9th July 07 so was only out for just over a year. I then decided to leave after a further 6 years of service and put my 12 months notice/termination paperwork in 11th July 12 I had to write a letter to glasgow (23rd Aug 12) in order to aggregate my previous service on the 75 scheme over to the newer 05 scheme which I was on. This then gave me a total of 14 years service. I recieved a letter back (6th Sept 12) confirming that all was fine and that the actual aggregation would take place upon my final termination and to keep the letter for my records which I have done. I then requested a pension forecast to find out what my pension would be and got the pension forecast back on 26th Oct 12. On this forecast it clearly states my annual deferred pension which is payable from the age of 65, it also clearly states a deferred lump sum of 3 x the annual deferred pension also payable at 65. Now here is the interestin part..... It also clearly states that A tax free Resettlement Grant of £10,302.00. So from this as far as I was aware I would get this Resettlement Grant on leaving the Army. Over the last couple of months I have contacted the SPVA in order to make sure that everything was ok as we would be living off this money until my new contracts/employment started. They informed me that all was ok and that the payment usually takes about 10 working days to go through. After patiently waiting the 10 days I still had no payment so I contacted the SPVA to find out what was going on and it was at this point I was informed that there had been a change in the aggregated service part or something and that I had been mis informed and that my careers manager or someone should have told me. I have been given no such information or been told otherwise. So here is me thinking that all is good and I'm covered until I get my contracts coming through only to have the rug pulled from under me literally 4 days before my bills are due. As you can imagine i'm now absolutely screwed as I have now no money to cover me or my family and will now probably lose everything and be left homeless. I flagged up a service request as a matter of urgency and asked for someone to contact me to find out what I can do. Is there anything I can do? Can I appeal? I feel like I have been totally screwed over and now that I am out I think that I'm just going to get brushed aside and left to deal with the backlash of what is clearly something that isnt my fault. Help Please anybody.
