Claiming a pension
« on: January 26, 2016, 09:29:46 AM »
I have 3 pensions coming into payment on my 60th next month.

The RAF wouldn't tell me how much I'll get until I tell them the LTA (lifetime allowance) percentage and the total annual amounts of my other pensions.

The Civil Service wouldn't tell me how much I'll get until I tell them the LTA (lifetime allowance) percentage and the total annual amounts of my other pensions.

Virgin wouldn't tell me how much I'll get until I tell them the LTA (lifetime allowance) percentage and the total annual amounts of my other pensions.

Stuck.

I sent off requests for forecasts of all 3 pensions.

The RAF responded the same week, including LTA% and gross annual amount.

The Civil Service received my form on 4th December, and sent out the forecast on 14th December. Not received by me.

When I did not respond to the forecast, they sent out a duplicate on 28th December with a cover note to respond ASAP. Not Received by me.

I just dug around the internet and found a phone number for them. 35 minutes on hold, then was cut off. Then 22 minutes on hold and I got through and was told my LTA% but they were unable to tell me my gross annual amount.

Another copy of my forecast is being sent out.

Meanwhile Virgin sent me a forecast, but the name on the form wasn't me, plus the sum seemed huge! I contacted them and was told it was an internal problem they have been trying to solve since November!!!!

So still stuck  >:(
