    Hi,
    Thought I'd jump in on this post as I am also thinking of rejoining the Corps. I'm in the RMR now but getting accurate advice on rejoining seems hard to come by there.
    Ninja Stoker made the following comment which has left me wanting to clarify something; "Those joining before 2005, will have their former service deducted from the new AFPS 2005, 18 year contract."
    I did 5 years in the Corps joining in 2005 but on the 75 pension scheme due to 3 previous years in the army (2 of which were from age 16). I'm not that interested in the pension aspect but want to know how long a new contract would be for if I did rejoin. Would I sign a new 18 year contract, 18 years less the years already served or is it the old 22 year contract less the years already served?

    Basically if you were on the old 22 year contract you won't be this time round. Your time done previously will be taken into account when signing on the current 18 year contract. If you have already done 5 years you will only have 13 left to do. However you will have 5 years preserved pension on the old scheme and 13 years when time done on the current scheme. Therefore you won't leave on a full pension only two preserved pensions.

    You can either stay with that option or transfer the 5 years preserved over when you rejoin to the current scheme ( you have 12 months to do this in) so when you are time done you leave with a whole pension scheme not two preserved ones

    Yeah there is that. Things are changing in 2015 pensions wise. What I said it what it currently is
