1 Introduction

2. What financial help can I get?

3. Does my war pension affect my welfare benefits?


The first £10 a week of your basic war pension is not counted as income when the Department for Work and Pensions is calculating what level of means-tested benefits (such as Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance or pension credit) to pay. But the rest of your war pension counts as income and will affect your benefit. If you need more help on your benefits and how they affect your war disablement pension, contact:

  • the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency;
  • The Royal British Legion;
  • the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association - Forces Help (SSAFA-FH); or
  • Citizens Advice.

See 'Further help' below for how to contact these organisations.
