Resettlement is the time for 2020 pension focus

First things first. All of us at the Forces Pension Society wish you a happy New Year.

The start of a new year, of course, is often the time for new resolutions and we'd like to propose one. We know that a great many in the Armed Forces, for one reason and another, simply haven't appreciated the intricacies of the Armed Forces Pension Schemes and the options available to them and their families. Well this new year, 2020, is the ideal time for those in resettlement to put that right.

No one knows better than we do how complex your pension choices can be. Our team of acknowledged experts deals with these complexities day in, day out. And every case we review is unique to the individual and their circumstances.

By joining our fast-growing membership – now almost 60,000 strong – you will become better informed about your options, learn how to get the most from your pension entitlement and have access to our Pension Advisory Team. You’ll be kept up to date with changes in the Armed Forces Pension Schemes and alerted to the issues on which we campaign strongly, such as the injustices inherent in the current Annual Allowance and Taper Tax regulations.

There’s even more to membership of the Society; you will have access to our trusted affiliates offering you preferential rates on a whole variety of products and services from new car and white goods discounts to a wide range of health and other insurances and financial advisory services.At just £40 a year for you and your spouse/partner, we believe membership offers outstanding value for money. So make a resolution now and join us or contact our membership secretary at

As we say, it pays to understand your pension

With all good wishes for the New Year
