About Membership

The Forces Pension Society is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that’s funded by its members through annual subscriptions. By becoming a member you’ll have exclusive access to our highly knowledgeable staff who are experienced specialists on Armed Forces pensions. You’ll also have access to a wide range of benefits provided by a variety of relevant affiliated partners carefully chosen by the Society.

The Forces Pension Society is open to all members of the Armed Forces – serving or retired – and their spouses, partners, parents, children and stepchildren. To join the Society, you don’t need to receive an Armed Forces pension, you just need to have served in the military.

At only £45 for an annual subscription, you can choose whether you need a single or a joint membership. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind. We can help you to clarify your pension benefit entitlements and understand decisions such as:

  • submitting notice to leave
  • opting to serve as a Reservist
  • the implications of divorce
  • medical discharges

These complex pension schemes require constant vigilance and in this respect the Society acts as watchdog to hold government to account. We make sure that rules are applied fairly and mistakes are corrected.

Joining the Society is easier and simpler than ever – just click here and follow the instructions to complete the online application form and become a part of this ever-expanding membership organisation.
