New online claims service - Veterans UK

by Leigh Rhodes - Compensation Advocacy and Support Officer

Veterans UK, part of Defence Business Services (DBS) have launched an online claims service for Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and War Pension Scheme (WPS) claims. The online service is intuitive and straight forward to use, and individuals can submit multiple claims on the one application, save progress and upload documents to support their claim. Paper forms are still available, on request. Both the online claim form and contact details to request a paper version can be found at:

Apply for Armed Forces Compensation or a War Pension - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).

If you are considering making a claim, please get in touch with me at: leigh.rhodes@whiteensign.co.uk, or log a case via the WEA. I can offer advice and guidance on the process, including explaining what is required to satisfy ‘attributable to service’ in each of the two schemes and what evidence will be needed to support your claim.
