UN Pension????
« on: September 23, 2017, 17:11:27 »
A fellow at the OSI told me about a UN pension that exists.  Tried the google machine and could not find anything. A friend has an injury in a SDA on a UN mission, curious if anyone has ever heard of such a thing? And how to apply. TIA

Those are for UN staff.

Those are pensions for UN employees.  As CAF members on peacekeeping missions are not UN employees, they would not be covered by that plan.

Then why did we fill out UN forms for injuries we incurred on Tour?  There must be some reason that those were done?

Not having seen the forms, I can't speculate on the reasons.

But the pension in the link is for retired UN employees; CAF members do not qualify.

Probably for statistics. After all, the UN is useless.
