My understanding is that maximum pensionable time is 35 years.

I was trying to simplify numbers. 35 years is the max pensionable time, but the age was raised to 60 from 55 to draw from your pension without penalty. My apologies for the confusion. Any employee who signed their contract before this change maintains a retirement age of 55 based on the agreement in place at the time.

Makes cents (sp. intended) 😉. Your numbers are correct. Stipulation being one has the required maximum years to qualify for an unreduced pension.

Furtur proche, or close future in English, is using the verb aller when talking about something in the future. Ex je vais aller à Montréal, demain - I'm going to Montreal tomorrow. The other is discours indirect, it is repeating back something said or heard to a third person. You use it during the second part of the test .

If want to send me your email I can send you a breakdown of the four parts of the test and a brief outline of what is needed to achieve each proficiency level for the oral interaction.

Don't worry in the info I would share is not trade secrets, the info can be found online with a little research.
PM sent thanks!

Kelli unfortunately you would see a reduced pension. Expect your pension to be reduced by 5% for every year prior to age 65. Soooooo a 25% reduction.

Your calculation based on info you provided:

$57,400 × 23 years of service x .01375

Total: $18,152.75

Plus

Thank you!

$25,011 × 23 years of service x .02

Total: $11,505.06

Estimated annual uneduced pension: $29,657.81 gross

Retire at age 60? Subtract 25%

$29,657.81 x .75

Estimated annual reduced pension:

$22,243.35 gross annual salary

$1853.61 gross monthly plus bridge benefit or CPP. Wait until 65 or later for OAS if it still exists in 23 years.

Hope that helps and please don't hold me to this rough estimate. I'm not a pensions professional, nor a mathematician 😄

5% penalty per year for every year you retire before 60 (I.e. meeting the age factor), and 2% per year for every year you retire under the maximum pensionable time (ie 40 year max).

A “25 and out” pension only proposes to emilninate the 5% penalty; the 2% per year loss would still apply.
So under the 25 and out type pension, say if you started working at age 25 and retired at 50 (25 years of service) you would still be penalized? I thought that those types of pension deals let you claim the full pension (2% x 25 years times highest 5 years average salary) after working the 25 years? Or am I just misunderstanding 88)

So here's a question.
Have any BSO joined the CAF reserves AFTER becoming a BSO?
Is there any scenario where you'd be allowed the time off to do that? Or if I want to do that should I hurry up and do it ASAP?

Wait till you’re done the 12 months of probation then join. As for leave there’s military leave that allows you to take time off for the reserves.
