Serving police officers, armed forces personnel, fire & rescue and prison officers who continue on service could retire early with an immediate pension.  The value of this pension is significantly greater than that if they left service, as assumed by the CETV.  Therefore the value for a uniformed service pension in a divorce can be significantly understated by the CETV and an appropriate valuation of 3 times the CETV value is not uncommon.

£100 Uniformed Services Report

The off-line actuarial Uniformed Services Report costs only £100 (Excl VAT) per pension scheme valued. It is produced manually and signed off by an actuary, is returned to you in only two working days and includes a reconciliation to explain the major reasons for the differences. You can then discuss the findings of the report with your solicitor. There is no reason why you should not run a valuation on pensions worth less than £30,000, other than the fact that the likely difference in values may not justify the small cost.
