Why you should get a pension forecast


The Forces Pension Society always recommends that you request a forecast for your spouse’s pension.

"Empower" on folder and calculator

Otherwise, you may be surprised by the amount you receive on the death of your loved one.

This is particularly relevant if you have any pre-73/78 service, or have remarried.

For instance, it’s common for widows to assume they will receive half of their spouses’ pensions. But in some instances they can end up with much less.

To avoid making this painful discovery, during an already stressful time, please write to:
