Veterans Views - 9th January 2014 by Ian Fidler

The purpose of this section of the website is to enable Veterans to obtain answers to queries and to share information and ideas across our community.It is very easy to use and provides a quick and effective way to interact with the Veterans Support Office,Regional and Local Association Committee members and other Veterans.

Why not try it out as a means of letting me know what you think we can do to improve the service and support the Veterans Association provides.

Regards Ian.

As a Sainsburys pensioner with 22years service I retired at state pension age which was 60. I still feel it is harsh that I am unable to be a veteran as for much of my service the qualifying service was 15 years. Although I realise the cost of keeping the staff card was considered too great I think membership of the veterans should still be possible for colleagues who retire at state pension age.

In answer to Lizzy's question regarding joining the Veterans and keeping the discount card, unfortunately you do need to leave due to retirement after 25 years to retain the discount card. However, you are welcome to join a local association and enjoy their activities and events.

What happens if you're leaving Sainsburys but not retiring , if you've done 25 years service can you still. Be a veteran and keep your discount card etc even though you may be in your 40 s?

I have just discovered the 'Search' facility at the top of the Home page and found 20 items when I keyed in the word 'Colchester'. Next to it is also a handy text enlarger button which can be clicked until the script is more readable. You learn something new every day!
