Under the scheme you can make a claim for any injury or illness which was caused or made worse by your service. This can include minor injuries such as fractures or more serious conditions including amputations and mental health problems.
You do not need to have served in a conflict, and there is no time limit on making a claim, but you cannot make a claim until you have left the service.
If you have suffered an injury or illness due to you service, we can help you claim under the War Pensions Scheme.
Our experts can provide advice and information and may be able to represent you at a tribunal for free, if you want to take further action.
Our team of War Pension & Compensation Representatives will advise you over the phone and discuss your case, the decision made by Veterans UK and the need for further evidence if appropriate. They will also be able to explain how the Tribunal process works and what to expect at your hearing.
For a claim form, help with an Appeals Tribunal or for general advice, freephone us on 0808 802 8080, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that if your injury or illness happened on or after 6 April 2005 then your claim is assessed under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme.
