If we're on the same timeline as the last tranche then redundancy fields will come out in early Jan 2013. Not entirely sure about the date though. If I'm 'in field' then I'll have a punt.....there is bound to be changes for the worse on tranche 4.
Guys i took tranche 1 redundancy, i only qualified as i had got VENG, i can tell you its the best thing i ever did, my wife says im a different person now, so much more chilled, the stress was killing me, but please have a plan, if you dont own a house buy one now as once you have applied for redundancy the banks wont touch you, the council wont house you until you spend all your money on rent, if you have qualified for your pension there are very few benifits you can claim ( its a fact). But if you are all squared away its such a relief, and think about if you stay in its only going to get worse< more workload ect ect.....whatever you decide good luck.
