Very naughty: TA pension rubbish on armyjobs...

Discussion in 'Armed Forces Pension Scheme' started by msr, Nov 5, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. msr

    msr LE

  2. I think someone better tell them because I'm pretty sure someone who should have a little more intelligence simply cut and paste the hyperlink thingies instead of reading it first.
  3. And it's bollocks even for the regs:

    AFPS05 is 65 for your preserved pension, isn't it?
  4. IMO its quite clearly referring to the FTRS pension scheme.
  5. Whatever you do, DON'T mention it on the "Pensions for the TA" thread. It only encourages them...
  6. Not really, currently if you're over 55 by 06/04/2010 then you can take your pension at 60. If you're not 55 by 06/04/2010 then you have to take it at 65.
  7. Without going into the realms of the whole pension system a TA soldier who is or has been called up for service can claim that period of time as pensionable (from 2006 i think) there are TA soldiers now that have done 6,7,8 plus tours all of which is pensionable from the moment you are called up to final discharge date.
  8. Never mind the pension... Has anyone compared the salary with that of an NHS manager - A 1 star gets less than an associate director and you have to be a Colonel to earn the same as a senior managing bean counter ( band8) with no authority

    Chief Exec gets £200kpa and a Director £100-£150K. Below this there is no real delegated authority

    Gob smacked
  9. Not in my PCT they don't, Chief Exec, who controls a budget of £600m for a population of 500,000 people had a package worth roughly £140,000 last year, directors are on £80k-115k depending on specialism. Compare that with private sector salaries for equal responsibility/budget.

    Equally our directorate has Band 8 posts responsible for service design and implementation who are on £37k a year ie low-mid Captain rank. Those on the high Band 8 scales have a huge amount of responsibilty but even then can only earn up to £79k, these are Asst Director level who actually make most of the decisions for running the PCT and have the authority to do so. We have no ADs on anything close to the on appointment salary of a one star, £95K. Most band 8s are on mid £40sK. The figures you are quoting are the exception rather than the rule.
  10. Must chase that up :x
  11. That will be PAYD then :wink:

  12. And that's why we have C1 and C2 training....

    Honestly, if anyone ever took the MoD to court over Terms and Conditions... we'd probably be entitled to our money back.

    It's only a matter of time before "Bounty" becomes "Annual Subscription".
  13. Just to preserve the quote for posterity ('cos you just know that it's going to be changed toot sweet):
  14. Don't bet on it. TA Regulations is even more likely to be featured in a "contract" court case but are hardly ever updated.
