All of the existing 470,000 Armed Forces Pensions, War Pensions, War Widows Pensions and Armed Forces Compensation Scheme payments are continuing to be made as usual into nominated bank accounts, and all requests for welfare support are being met, the same day where at all possible. Welfare Managers continue to be available and are in contact with known vulnerable veterans and working closely with local and national business partners to ensure those in need of support are linked into local services.
