1 Introduction

2. What financial help can I get?

3. Who can receive a war disablement pension?

4. What happens if I go into hospital or need extra care?

If you have to go into hospital, your basic war pension is not affected. But if you receive certain supplementary allowances, these might be reduced, depending on how long you have to stay in hospital.

The Service Personnel and Veterans Agency can help with the cost of travelling for hospital treatment connected with your War Disablement Pension. To get this money, you must tell the agency as soon as you know when your appointment will be.

Priority hospital treatment
NHS hospitals should normally give priority to:

  • war pensioners; and
  • people who have been paid compensation under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (for treatment to do with the injury or disablity that they received the compensation for).

However, at times hospitals may treat other people first if they believe their need is more urgent. You should inform your GP and hospital that you are getting a war pension to ensure you receive priority treatment whenever possible.

5. What if I need help finding somewhere to live?

6. What help can I get to find work when I leave the forces?

7. Where can veterans with special needs get help?

8. How can I claim my medals from my time in service?
