2. What financial help can I get?

3. Does my war pension affect my welfare benefits?

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

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

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

You can get help with resettlement and finding work after you leave the forces through the Career Transition Partnership (CTP). You can get help from the CTP for up to two years before and two years after you leave the Services. The help you can receive depends on how long you have served, but can include:

  • a career transition workshop to identify the skills and experience you have that you can use outside the Services;
  • access to a personal career consultant;
  • developing a personal resettlement plan;
  • workshops and seminars on topics such as CV writing, interview skills and starting a new business;
  • training to update existing skills or to learn new ones relevant to a job you are seeking;
  • advice on buying a house and relocating your children to new schools;
  • a personalised and local job-finding service.

Elements of the CTP resettlement service are provided by two charities: the Regular Forces Employment Association (RFEA) and the Officers' Association (OA). The RFEA and OA also help ex-servicemen and women find jobs beyond the two years after they leave the armed forces. See 'Further help' for how to contact CTP, RFEA and OA.
