The Financial Aspects of Resettlement (FAR) Programme


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

Financial advice is provided via a blended programme which provides a flexible option of attending either online or face-to-face Financial Aspects of Resettlement (FAR) briefings.

The MoD uses the Forces Pension Society (FPS) and Lester Brunt Wealth Management Ltd (LBWM), an appointed representative of St. James’s Place Wealth Management PLC, who are a firm of restricted financial advisers, with CTP providing administrative support.

The FAR programme is split in two parts: a comprehensive pension brief provided by FPS that aims to help Service personnel better understand their Armed Forces Pension and this is followed by a financial advice presentation from LBWM. 

Pension topics covered include:

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

The financial awareness presentation will cover:

  • All aspects of financial planning
  • Give ample time for questions
  • All consultations are without obligation

The whole briefing is scheduled to last approximately 4 hours, with a short break in-between the two presentations.

For further information, to check availability or to book your provisional place, contact the Central Bookings Team on 0203 162 4410.

Lester Brunt Wealth Management Ltd is an Appointed Representative of and represents only St. James’s Place Wealth Management Plc (which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority) for the purpose of advising solely on the Group’s wealth management products and services.
