This booklet has been produced to provide help and advice on a range of topics as you plan for your transition to civilian life. It aims to give useful information on the sort of help you can get, who can provide it and the action you need to take.

The information in this booklet is not a definitive statement of the law.  All contact details were correct at time of publication. Relevant, issues and comments specific to this document are to be directed to: DBSMilPers-FutDev-PP-userdocs@mod.gov.uk

The service leavers guide offers information and advice prior to and after leaving regular service. The guide contains information about armed forces pensions, resettlement, reserve liability and support from charitable organisations. Please see link below:


Of particular importance to service leavers is the Pen 1 form which should be completed at the 6 month point prior to your last day of service using the link on your JPA account. If you do not have access to JPA you should compete and return the hardcopy form, no later than 6 months before your last day of service. The completion of the form is a legal requirement and failure to do so will result in a delay of the receipt of any terminal benefits and pension that you are entitled to.
