  1. Hi guys,

    I'm in the TA and am deploying to afghanistan for 3 months in the summer. I probably won't leave Bastion that often, but I was wondering that in the event of my death, is my partner entitled to the same compensation as married couples - we have lived together for 6 years, have a mortgage together, and 2 kids!

    Cheers
     
  2. Unfortunately, I don't believe so - the MOD does recognise civil partnerships but not living together. I think that there is probably an avenue through your children being your legal next of kin but I suggest you ask the G1 cell at RTMC and they will either answer your query or pass you on to somebody who knows.
