The Financial Aspects of Resettlement (FAR) Programme

Financial Aspects of Resettlement (FAR) briefings are usually delivered at all RRCs and some satellite locations, where required, throughout the year.

The MoD are strong advocates in supporting you to ensure your finances are in good shape as you leave the services.

The MoD uses the us (FPS) and St James’s Place Wealth Management PLC (SJP), a firm of independent financial advisors (authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority) to provide the Financial Aspects of Resettlement webinar, with CTP providing administrative support.

The programme is split into two halves, firstly FPS provides a comprehensive brief that aims to help service personnel better understand what they are entitled to from their Armed Forces Pension Schemes.  Topics covered include:

  • An overview of each pension scheme
  • Medical awards
  • Commutation
  • Pen Form 1 completion and more...

The second part of the presentation is scheduled for 90 minutes and is provided by SJP who have been working alongside the Armed Forces for many years. They have helped numerous service personnel manage their finances, as they settle into civilian life.This presentation will cover:

  • All aspects of financial planning
  • Give ample time for questions
  • There are no charges made for any initial consultations

As face to face briefings are currently suspended, FAR briefings are now being delivered by webinar. The whole presentation is scheduled to last 3 ½ hours, with a short-break in-between the two parts.

Recent feedback said

"There was a great wealth of knowledge in some grey areas, thank you all for taking the time to chat. Of particular interest to myself was the pensions information and the inflation figures. Would recommend to anyone in resettlement, even if you don’t think you’d get anything from it - there will be something"
