Welfare Support PAck

How we can help

The Welfare Support Pack is a comprehensive resource tailored to address the unique challenges faced by veterans. This essential guide covers a broad range of topics, including physical and mental health care, employment support, education opportunities, financial guidance and housing assistance. Compiled by the North of England Branch, the pack aims to empower veterans with the tools and information necessary to navigate post-service life successfully.

Veterans & Armed Forces Pension Scheme

A world-class pension scheme

When a member of an Irish Guards member reaches their retirement age, they receive one of the most generous pensions available in the UK. This fairly reflects the unique sacrifice you have provided to the country.

All members of the armed forces are automatically enrolled into the Veterans & Armed Forces Pension Scheme. Unlike all other public schemes, members pay 0% in contributions each month. The scheme is unfunded and paid from the public purse.

It's important that you have all the information on your pension, it belongs to you. To find out more, visit our Veterans Pension Scheme page below.
