WARNING: Still in service after a divorce? You may lose all of your pension!

Angry Unable to deploy?

75' pension

FYI, before AFPS 15' came in, I was expecting around 33k at age 55 as a Flt Lt PAS on AFPS 75'. Now on the new scheme it's 8-9k more per annum at age 55. That's based on current pay rates, zero...
