I am a serving SNCO and, with my 24 year exit point looming all to large on the horizon, I am naturally considering my employment options 'on the other side'. The MPGS is certainly an avenue to explore, but I seem to be unable to find much in the way of information on pensions. My specific concerns are:
Would I still receieve my lump sum on leaving, if I were to transfer straight across to the MPGS? As they are still part of the Army, would I be regarded as not having left? My motivation for a direct transfer would be to hopefully avoid the lengthy application delays I have read about elsewhere on this thread.
Noting the above, would I be better leaving in the normal manner, then applying to rejoin a few weeks down the line but risking the aforementioned delays?
Would I be required to surrender my lump sum if rejoining, effectively rendering the second point moot?
Would I receive my monthly pension in addition to my MPGS salary, or would I be ineligible due to still being employed by the Army?
My apologies for all the questions, but I have always found it pays to thoroughly research something before jumping in!

I'm currently serving in the MPGS. I would highly recommend this job to any ex-serving forces.
