Interested ? - you should be. The new Pensions deal has been announced and will soon be on your P1Os. Always a mysterious topic, we have somehow allowed a highly contentious, badly consulted and unfair new scheme to replace a scheme the Forces Pensions Society declare was the worst in the public services. Is this better than today`s scheme or worse ? EDP Reality: No resettlement commutation, 50% reduction in your pension from 40-55, no indexed linked uplift for all inflation increases to 55, 25% reduction in your pension from 55 - 65, lump sum based on (lower) preserved pension at 65 (if you are alive). Ball park figures - most people ₤100k+ worse off (unless you die in Service). Widows & partners of personnel dying in service better off. Treasury -₤100m better off (their own figures on the Press release). "supported by senior Service personnel branches" who, why, when ? Were YOU consulted ? "It sounds bad but I'm ok, I'll stay on the current scheme" - is self interest really the way forward for the Armed Forces ? Absolutely appalling........but you do the maths and see it too. Watch & Shoot... Wilson, how we have allowed this snake to sneak up & bite our arrse ?
