The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has put arrangements in place to mitigate for those Service leavers and veterans who made claims via the Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) scheme in Financial Year (FY) 2019-20 and were subsequently adversely affected due to COVID-19 restrictions. Individuals affected will either be entitled to an ELC claim amendment for a rescheduled course in FY 2020-21 or, exceptionally, depending on individual circumstances, a scheme membership expiry date extension. We have already considered and approved a number of such requests on a case-by-case basis and will continue to do so.
