The Legion’s Benefits and Money Advice team can support you with your finances, including impartial and non-judgemental advice about how to maximise your income by claiming the benefits and tax credits you're entitled to.
If you're a Legion beneficiary and think you could be entitled to benefits that you're not yet receiving, we might be able to help.
Our advisers know how complex life in the Armed Forces can be and how a military life involves unique challenges that can lead to financial problems.
We understand the difficulties around moving regularly, loved ones being away, re-joining civilian life and coping with post-traumatic stress disorder.
