NOK Pension rights result.

Relatives of soldiers killed whilst serving in acting roles will now receive their full pension for that rank, the Ministry of Defence has said.

From 3 January pensions will be paid on the basis of their acting rank, regardless of how long they had been serving in that position.

It comes after a campaign by the relatives of Sgt Matthew Telford from Grimsby who was killed in Afghanistan.

Well done to the powers that be for apparently sorting this iniquitous rule.

Perhaps signing petitions does help, who knows. Anyhoo, RESULT! :thumright:


The MoD will also be paying a sum (yet to be announced) for their untaken leave. Its also not clear if that will include POTL.
