Am I entitled to a pension?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

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

  1. Can anyone point me in the right direction or answer my query? I joined the RN in June 1962 , did a LS1(?) And came out in June 1971. Am I entitled to any sort of deferred pension? This 1975 business has me completely baffled! Thanks in anticipation. Peter..
    PS all adult years.
  2. I am sorry to have to tell you that, because you left before 1975, you have no preserved pension for your service between 1962 and 1971.
  3. I joined the RN 1970 and left 1978 how do I claim my deferred pension?
  4. Drop Veterans UK a line at the following address:

    Veterans UK
    Mail Point 480
    Kentigern House
    65 Brown Street
    G2 8£X

    They will need your name, Service number and date of discharge to locate the record.

    When I left the army in 1976 I had over 7 years reconable service. However I left two months before my 26th birthday so under the rules of AFPS 75 I am ineligible!

    This rule did not last long and the 26 age restriction was removed, but not in time for me, and I bet quite a few other guys.
  8. You should sell some books to try and make up the difference! :)

    How can one make up the difference when the start is £0 and the end is £0? Maybe I should sell you a book on sums n things!
  10. The difference between not having a pension, and having one!
