Who are BL Claims Solicitors

The current rules state that a non-commissioned officer aged over 40 with 18 years service can retire and take a tax free lump sum and part of their pension early.  For officers, its 16 years.

In a study produced by the New Employment Model for the MOD, an increase of between 2 and 5 years service has been recommended.  The reason for these proposals is said to be cost.      

Have you recently been made redundant or are approaching 18 or 16 years service?  I would like to hear from you.
