Any veteran wishing to apply for the War Pension Mobility Supplement (WPMS) can do so via the following link available on GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/war-pension-scheme-mobility-supplement-wpms

The Transformation Programme to digitise existing paper-based processes and create a single customer portal for Veterans is underway. An online Armed Forces Compensation and War Pension Scheme application service has been developed and is currently being tested in a beta phase.

The circa £40 million Transformation Programme will expand the on-line claim service to other types of claims under the Compensation Schemes.
