I was MD'd on 20 Nov 08 and have already received my lump sum and pension details. Today I received a letter from SPVA informing me that I was entitled to a War Pension of 50% attributable to my service and how much I would get each month. Does my Service Invaliding Pension (SIP) now become tax free? I'm probably wrong but as I'm on the AFP75 scheme I thought this meant being awarded a pension amount that was then trebled into another lump sum like your original pension (eg 20% is Â£4k x 3=Â£12k lump sum plus another monthly pension payment). I just want to make sure I'm getting everything I'm entitled to.
