There are new pension laws that come into effect next year. When I can receive whole or part of my army pension. I am due the pension at the age of 60. I am confused if I am entitled to claim my pension early.

OK here is an update. The Glasgow Veterans Pensions have not had any guidelines yet In regards to the new pension law coming into effect 2015. But I did find out that if you are on DLA and are unable to work, you can collect your pension early. I am entitled to receive my pension at 60. I am now 53. Because I am on DLA I can have my pension now.

What I,m interested in now is: will I get some taken off me due to the fact I,m claiming benefits?

Hi olafJensen

 

Many thanks for the update.

 

As this is a normal Armed Forces Pension sadly YES for certain benefits it may be classed as an Occupational Pension and you would have to declare it as a change in circumstances. (remember this is only for certain benefits only not them all) HB & CTB, ESA (previously Incapacity Benefit)
