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.

Pension topics covered include:
- An overview of each pension scheme
- Medical awards
- 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.
