Claims for compensation if you are medically discharged

August 7, 2017

If you are discharged on medical grounds and receive an immediate pension, your case is automatically referred back to MOD Veterans UK for assessment against entitlement for compensation under either the War Pension Scheme or Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. There is no need to submit a separate claim form. This affects all AFPS75 cases and AFPS05 or AFPS15 cases that are discharged under tier 2 or tier 3.
