Good morning everyone,

i have, i think, a good question for the admin people here. 

when i did release after 12 years of service, i did received my transfer value.  2 portion is include in the transfer value, 1) locked IN and 2) the unlocked portion.

I did used my unlocked portion to paid off some stuff.

but after a 1 1/2 years, DMCA 4 came back to me that i was able to received an annuity pension because i was declare disable.

my question now is, i understand that the locked IN portion will have to go back to them for recalculation, what happen with the unlocked portion?

do i have to gave them back the unlocked portion also? and if so, can it be taken on the pension cheque every month?

thank you for your help

xx Pride to be in the forces and everybody is leaving

November 09, 2016, 14:07:25 by JF P
Hi everyone

I have been in the airforce for 8 years .its is now my second posting and still the same .no one like to be in the forces and everybody is trying to get out .

I like the canadian forces , the best time i had was on tasking or exercise in seems like everyone i met in wainwright ( infantry or armoured ) loved there job and bever said anything about it being bullshit and couldnt wait to get out .im a firefighter so it could be that airforce love to complain but everubody is looking for civilian job .

So after that long paragraphe of not saying anything i was wondering if there is more pride in the army , more people liking there job and less complaining ( i dont mean complaining about the shitty weather ,the rain or the lack of sleep ) i mean complaining about serving there country or the forces in general .it seems like it was better before people are saying but if i was looking to remaster the army a better fit .

xx QL2 Qualified, Thinking of Switching Trade

November 05, 2016, 16:30:44 by ThunderT
I apologize if this is a common question, because I have a gut feeling that it is, but a search did not bring up any result.

I'm a QL2 qualified reservist, and despite not having the full qualifications, my unit has graciously allowed me to get some hands-on experience with the rest of fully qualified unit. However, I've unfortunately found that the trade I'm in isn't quite stirring up the passion I was hoping for. My question is, if I'm interested in transferring to a different trade before my QL3 course, how would I go about initiating the process? What documents should I ask for (if any), and from who?

xx Best job for somebody with a nursing degree.

October 11, 2016, 03:24:11 by bionicledude0
My situation is that I am going to complete my nursing degree in 2 years time. This being said I don't necessarily want to be nurse if it is not a direct combat role. A friend of mine mentioned I could apply to be a medical officer, then apply to CSOR after 2 years.
thanks in advance :cdn:
