We’re back with our ‘Question of the Week’

There’s often confusion around EDP and lump sums, as you can see with this question.

I left the RN in April 2011 on AFPS 05, and I seem to recall that there was a second lump sum payable at age 65! Am I imagining this?

On AFPS05 you would have received an Early Departure Payment (EDP) when you left. When you reach 65, you will be paid a lump sum equivalent to your EDP, along with your monthly pension benefits. Please note you must apply for this 3-6 months before its due (your birthday) by using AFPS Form 8.

More to come next week!
