Can you apply to the War Pensions Scheme?

You may be able to get fund from this scheme if you have an illness or injury caused by service in the Armed Forces before April 6, 2005, and are no longer serving in the Armed Forces.

If you have an illness or injury caused by service in the Armed Forces on or after April 6, 2005, you may also be able to get help from the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme instead.

Bereaved partners may be entitled to access money from the War Widow’s/Widower’s Pension from the War Pensions Scheme if your spouse’s or civil partner’s death was a result of their service in the Armed Forces before April 6, 2005.

If the death happened on or after April 6, 2005, whilst still serving in Armed Forces, you may qualify for the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme instead.
