Rejoin and pension Transfer.

Good day.

I served 4 years prior to 2005 when I believe there was some change in the Army pension. I will be rejoining the Army in December and I am just wondering if my privious 4 year pension contributions will be transfered over to the new style pension (which I know very little about)

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

    There is nothing in law/legislation that governs this and it depends on the rules of the scheme.

    You'll need to contact them and ask - sorry.

    Yes they will.
  • Although not an answer to your question, I also rejoined after leaving for 4 years and strongly recommend you to contact the Pensions office prior to or immediately after you rejoin to confirm exactly what and when you will receive the pension. When I left I transferred my pension into a private scheme and was not informed when I rejoined that I had to pay it back in. This results in me possibly not being entitled to an immediate pension and although you may not have transferred as I did I heave heard horror stories. For peace of mind give them a call, hope this helps and good luck.
