Do you think you might be eligible, or know a veteran who might have an unclaimed Armed Forces pension?

Remarkably, it was assessed in a MoD Armed Forces Pension Scheme (AFPS) Annual Report that some 16,500 people are not claiming their Armed Forces pension.

Although this is often seen as an entitlement, the pension is NOT paid automatically!

Veterans must apply to Veterans UK using AFPS Form 8, or they can call the Forces Pension Society on 0800 085 3600 for further information.
