[FONT="]Presuming you are on Armed Forces Pension Scheme 1975 (AFPS 75), I think the answer is when you’re 65.[/FONT]
[FONT="]I am not a MOD pension expert, but I managed to dig up the following quote:[/FONT][FONT="]Why was the preserved pension age increased from 60 to 65? [/FONT][FONT="]Prior to 6 April 2006 all personnel who were in AFPS 75 and left before the immediate pension point having completed at least two years reckonable service had their benefits paid at age 60. For service after 6 April 2006 the preserved pension age is 65. The reasons for the increase to the preserved pension age was to take account the impact of longevity on public sector schemes.[/FONT]

All depends on when you served, I believe that before 1975, you either got a pension (22years service (16 for Ocifers)) or nothing eg no preserved pensions.
