New War Pension Rates 2013

#2
The men in posh suits we paid for are making nice moises towards the military today!!!!

More spending, war pensions raised, new equipment on the horizon!!!!!!

That means either an election is looming and they don't like the cut of the public's jib, or that they have another ******* pointless war lined up, I like it not!

Nothing about the actual rate or who gets how much but why do they insist on the class warfare style of notation?

Disablement Pension(100%) rates
officer (£ per annum)
other ranks (weekly amount)


Is there some reason why we plebs get a weekly amount or is it just that officers would struggle with the concept of multiplication?

Just seems slighty anachronistic some how.

I believe it's because officers would view the weekly rate as only sufficient for a light lunch in London, and by displaying their entitlement as an annual rate sufficient for a decent fortnight's holiday the Govt is mitigating any possible discontent.

This is more about the fact that war pensions will not rise as much as other pensions. Inflation at 2.2% will be given an uplift to 2.5% for state and public pensions (including the mil pension) but will not be applied to the war pension which will be pegged to the lower limit.

It's probably more to do with the introduction of PIP that any potential disparity in pensions. War Pensioners will be subject to re-assessment by ATOS Health Care Professionals under the new system as, unlike AFCS, War Pensions are managed by the DWP.

I take it you mean WP getting DLA will need re-assessment by ATOS ?

WP in receipt of DLA will be reassessed when PIP is introduced, but as WP are run by DWP any WP submitting a deterioration claim will also likely be reassessed by an ATOS HCP just as other DWP benefit claimants are.

These days its MOD running them no longer dwp even the e mail address is now mod no longer dwp.gov

Agency and the Veterans Agency on 1st April 2007. During 2010-11 SPVA operated from four main sites at Gosport, Glasgow, Innsworth

Where do you get the idea that all War Pensioners are going to be retested by atos ? the only ones I can see that will be seen are War Pensioners moving from DLA to PIP and the second draft of PIP regulations and the New document from the DWP of DLA to PIP myths says that not all people moving will need a face to face medical

Thanks for that Davewhit!
I just worry as it took about 16 years of fooking about with DLA etc. before Norcross said sod it, forget being asked to do a medical every 6 months(i'm not going to get better)! we will take it on and i am happy with what i get now! I'm just scared it will come a cropper at some point when they ask for a review in a money saving crusade!

I have just moved from IB to ESA and no medical got support group for 3 years, I now reckon that my DLA Higher mobility middle care will become lower lower of PIP and I reckon I have enough evidance to move without a face to face (fingers crossed)

DWP ATOS and Military Veterans

"Veterans are looked after by the SPVA. It is the SPVA who write to veterans about medical reviews etc. The administration for all war pensions awarded prior to 2005 is conducted by the SPVA. However, since 2005, the SPVA review medicals have been handled by ATOS Healthcare, under a contract awarded and managed by the DWP(DWP ? Department for Work and Pensions corporate website). Extracts of the Contract have been published on this website. All the medical reports have been produced by staff in the employ of ATOS Healthcare. The quality of a number of these medical reports is regarded as "dubious" at best and proven "unsound" in the case that this website highlights."

dave, there are a couple of links in there in case your software doesn't pick them up.

It will be because the scum cannot budget beyond a week obviously and need to get it like a pay parade.
