Hello, I was medical discharged from the RN in 2001 after 5 1/2 years of service. I was given a War Pension at 30%, and also receive a naval pension. I emigrated to the US in 2010, and now get my pensions automatically debited to my US bank account. I'm 36 years old now. The questions i never asked when leaving are, and are now puzzling me ... Are these pensions for life? Do they increase/decrease at 55 or old age, Do you receive a lump sum at retirement age ?
