    Just had a random sobering thought.... A guy born the year that I retired, 1974, Could now be a pensioner himself! I must take a pill and have a rest. :D
  6. you left the year I joined and I have had a pension since 1998.

    Doc 62 there are many factors, rate, commutation, inflation. Most have talked on here of having increases over 70% with some during the high inflation years <100%

  11. For a pension awarded on 28 Nov 2003 - multiply your pre-commutation pension by 1.394831 to get today's value.

  14. Either way Vauxhall your a gent, so here's question 2 where do we find out our pre commutation pension do we get it from our pension people? I ain't got no paperwork left From when I left the good old Andrew
  15. If you haven't got the paperwork, the only way you can find out what your original award was is to ask Veterans UK and the following address:

    Pensions Division

    Mail Point 480

    Kentigern House

    65 Brown Street


    G2 8EX
  16. Okay doky once again thank you for your help

  18. Cheers taff that seems like a nice rise trouble is I will get hammered at the 40% tax rate because of existing job but I thought this would happened can't get out past the taxman can we even though we gave them a quarter of a century of service.
  19. your lucky I did 15 years came out 1958 given a gratuity of one hundred pounds and thanks now f o

  20. I left in 2000 - again as Chief after 22. On £459 on leaving and that went up to £859 last year.
    As Doc62 alluded - tax is hit due to salary and so called free company health insurance (included in tax calcs as a benefit)
