1 Introduction

PLEASE NOTE: This leaflet is currently being updated to reflect recent changes in the law. As a result of these changes, certain topics in this leaflet are now out-of-date.

It is therefore extremely important that you get further information or personal advice if you feel you have a problem.

Veterans are people who have served in the armed forces, and their dependants (usually their husband or wife, partner or children). This leaflet explains veterans' rights to financial and other types of support, and where to get advice and help with that support.
