What we are

The not-for-profit military
pension watchdog

The Forces Pension Society is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that acts as the pension watchdog for the entire military community.


The Society empowers its members to make better, well-informed choices about their Armed Forces Pension. We provide members of the Armed Forces Pension Schemes and their partners with personalised pension advice. We influence at the ‘top table’, working in collaboration with government for the appropriate delivery of your pension.

The society runs a series of roadshows and other educational sessions to better prepare the Armed Forces community on all pension matters. Members receive a variety of benefits including significant discounts and deals across a wide range of commercial goods and services.


Our pensions experts help our Members navigate their way through the pension maze empowering them to make better informed decisions.


Campaigning is at the very heart of the Society’s ethos, history and reputation.


Our group briefings help serving members of the Armed Forces better understand their pension.


We keep our community informed with a constant flow of topical Armed Forces Pension related news and content.
