Whether they are a new recruit, or a Serviceman or woman starting to think about the road ahead to Civvy Street, or a Veteran with a Preserved Pension, it’s never too early for them to start thinking about their pension.
Mark Lancaster TD VR MP, Minister for Defence Veterans, Reserves and Personnel, said:
“I am delighted to endorse the Veterans UK ‘Service to Civvy – Are you Pension Ready?’ campaign. Our servicemen and women make enormous sacrifices to protect our country and we need to do all that we can to ensure that they receive their Armed Forces Pension. The aim of the campaign is to encourage Service Personnel, Veterans and their families to think about their Armed Forces Pension throughout their career and beyond; we want to help them to help themselves become ‘Pension Ready’.”
Rob Rowntree, Head of Veterans UK, said:
“As Head of Veterans UK I am delighted to be able to help launch ‘Service to Civvy – Are you Pension Ready?’. At Veterans UK we strive to deliver the best service we can to all our customers and we hope this Campaign will help serving personnel, veterans and their families better understand the services we offer, especially the Armed Forces Pension Schemes. We want Serving Personnel to check their JPA HR records and for Veterans to get in touch when they move house or their details change. It’s easy to forget that you’ve got a Pension ready to be paid at retirement and if people don’t apply for their pensions when the time is right, we can’t pay them the money they deserve. Pensions are hugely important and we need to make sure that the wider Armed Forces community become much more ‘Pension Ready’. After all, they’ve earned it!”
