Meet our Compensation Advocacy and Support Officer (CASO). If you are considering making a claim on the War Pension scheme or AFCS, she can offer advice and guidance on the process, explain what is required to satisfy ‘attributable to service’ in each of the two schemes and what evidence will be needed to support your claim.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Leigh Rhodes and I am delighted to have been appointed by the WEA in a new role as Compensation Advocacy and Support Officer (CASO). After an initial period of training, kindly provided by The Royal Marines Charity and total immersion in all things Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and War Pension Scheme (WPS), I am now supporting personnel and veterans seeking assistance with their claims for injuries and illnesses caused by or made worse by service. Claims under the Armed Forces compensation schemes are not always straight forward and I will be looking to share some case studies in the future to raise awareness of issues and pitfalls faced by claimants. In the meantime, if you would like advice and support with a claim under the Armed Forces compensation schemes, please do register for our services via our website at www.whiteensign.co.uk or get in touch with me at: email@example.com and on: 07827885515.
