Forces Pension Society

Fighting for the forces and their families

Brief

Forces Pension Society Roadshow Programme

The pension needs of serving and retired members of the Forces and their families are as great today as they ever were in the 72 year history of FPS. And the efforts we make in helping ensure that our Members receive their proper pension entitlements and in campaigning against unfairness need to be sustained in these changing times.

As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, our funding comes primarily from Members’ subscriptions. It follows that as we strive to achieve more for our Members, we must continue to increase our membership base – more Members make us more effective, and you can help by arranging a Unit Brief.

In 2008 we introduced a new resource enabling us to deliver group briefings across all three services in the UK and overseas. They last for approximately 60 minutes and describe our work and its value to serving and retired members of the Armed Forces and their dependants. The feedback we receive is overwhelmingly positive and we regularly hear that the brief should be given to dependants too.

We deliver about 150 briefings each year and we’d like to hear from you with any suggestions for creating new briefing opportunities.

Please call Kate Goodchild on +44 (0) 7725 555 012  or email kateg@forpen.co.uk  who will be delighted to arrange a brief.
