The figure they show is about 10% less than its currently worth. And that is the amount I would get initially. And about 6 weeks later they disinvest your AVC funds and pay the rest of the fund at its current value. I did check and I can continue to pay into it and build up a new amount. Though whether Bonusplan will now go beyond 31st March 2018 is anyones guess!
I am also getting a very small extra supplement regardless of whether I leave RM or not which is connected to another pension I moved to RM when I first started. And indeed my pension and RM supplement amounts are bigger than I had calculated for which is nice! Though would still need to take my NRA65 early to be really ok when I leave RM and until the state pension kicks in..
Just hope the Goverment don't start changing the law and rules and fiddle with the index linking!!
