War Disablement Pensions
In this section, you will find information on War Disablement Pensions that are payable under the War Pension Scheme.
You can claim a War Disablement Pension if you are no longer Serving in HM Armed Forces and you have a disablement (i.e. an injury, illness or disease) that you consider was caused or made worse by service before 6 April 2005. If you think your disablement was caused by service on or after 6 April 2005, you should claim under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme [link]. Claims can be made for both physical or mental conditions.
There are no time limits for claiming under the War Pension Scheme but claims can only be considered once your service has ended., and payment will usually be made from the date of claim
