Forces Pension Society helps those who have unclaimed pensions


Debt advice for veterans and ex-forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland - coins spilling from a jar

Did you know that since 2017, Forces Pension Society has dealt with more than 6,000 enquiries from Veterans and their families? And that they have confirmed entitlements for more than 850 Veterans?

As a Veterans’ Gateway Referral Partner Forces Pension Society works closely with our team, to help those who may be eligible to collect their pension.

Recent successes include an individual who left the Army in 1988 after 12 years’ service. He received an annual pension of £5,000, a lump sum of £15,000 and two years’ back pension.

In difficult times like these, some are experiencing greater hardship than they should. I’m referring to those veterans that have unclaimed pensions because they are unaware that they may have qualified for a preserved pension based on previous service; and those who cannot be traced by the MoD’s Pension Administrator. We estimate there are around 8,000 such unclaimed pensions, some of which are quite substantial. Maj Gen Neil Marshall, CEO of the Forces Pension Society.
