When you join the Armed Forces, you sign up to the principle of Selfless Commitment; putting the needs of the mission and the team ahead of any personal interests. To us, at the Forces Pension Society that undertaking is a two-way street. It’s an example we strive to follow.
Our way of demonstrating how we much value your commitment is to work diligently and tirelessly on your behalf, fighting your corner when necessary and helping you choose the best pension options for you and your family. We do this in four ways:
- by providing you with pension guidance, supplying accurate, detailed information across all aspects of the Armed Forces Pension Schemes, delivered by the experts in our Pension Advisory Team
- by holding Governments to account where errors are made or where injustices in the system become apparent, for example when the oversight and administration of the schemes falls short of standards we expect today
- by helping the military community better understand the complexities and benefits of the Armed Forces Pension Schemes to help improve individual decision-making. We do this through our Roadshows, Financial Aspects of Resettlement briefings and through our membership e-newsletters and house magazine, Pennant
- by being your independent, representative at the top tables as Members of the MoD and Public Sector Pension Boards, ensuring your voice is heard
Our commitment is to help you make the best pension choices by keeping you up to date and well advised about your pension options. We do this because we believe passionately that it pays to understand your pension.
