Ex-Service Personnel Pensions Guide

There are now three Armed Forces pension schemes for members of the Regular Armed Forces and the one which applies to you depends upon your age, length of service and the decisions you have made during your career.

It is important that everyone should have a basic knowledge of their pensions position, the scheme or schemes that apply to them and what that means in terms of the timing and scale of pensions payments they will receive.

Career Transition Partnership has produced a useful guide containing information on pension options for military personnel leaving regular service, as well as the Reserve Forces Pension Scheme (RFPS) for Reservists.

There is also information on Armed Forces Redundancy Schemes and the War Widow's or War Widower's pension.
