Protect Your Pension -- Sign the Petition

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by swingfire, Dec 6, 2010.

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. Military Pensions
    The Government have altered how your Military Pension is affected by annual inflation. They have changed the link from RPI to CPI which will decrease the value of your pension year on year. Below are some examples, which have been supplied by the Forces Pension Society, illustrating the cost of the change from RPI to CPI:
    a. Disabled double amputee 28 year old Corporal £587,000 by age 70.
    b. 40 year old Sergeant Royal Marines £212,000 by age 85.
    c. 40 year old Squadron Leader £319,000 by age 85.

    Please sign the petition which is very easy to do, simply click on the link:

    To help make the petition grow please pass this information on to friends and college's. Support from both ex military and none military personnel for the petition is important as we believe the pension is a strong part of the Military Covenant which our Government is signed up to.
  2. I will sign.

    You should note however, CPI is 'not' always lower than RPI, so this can work the other way as well.
  3. Thanks for signing....

    Most commentators expect the CPI to be between 0.5% and 0.8% lower than RPI, over the long term.
