That sounds correct and I have been told that in effect the penalty only sounds horrendous.  In reality, it is bearable especially if you have somewhere else you need /want to be.
I'm just like the CAF, I seem to have retention issues.

Just to follow this up.

I have confirmed (via writing and a phone call) with the pension office that I am indeed grandfathered.  I am entitled to an immediate annuity.   

I was also told by the pension office that the website does not take into account the “grandfather clause”.  Which is why it appeared I was not entitled to an immediate annuity.

Those who are covered by the grandfather clause will have to call in to confirm their benefits.
