War widows and Forces family pension?

Discussion in 'Armed Forces Pension Scheme' started by Muzzle_Brake, Dec 12, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. About to ask the Women to marry me! But she is hesitaint because her late husband died in service, she has the above pensions. I believe that due to him dying whilst on duty they are attributable and therefore she will not lose any pension money. Is there anyone who can answer this?

  3. Not quite as straight forward as that! below is an extract from the publication oldbaldy gives a link to. Best advice is to get in touch with the veterans agency: 0800 169 22 77 - www.veteransagency.mod.uk


    SUSPENDING AND RESTORING ATTRIBUTABLE WIDOWS’ AND WIDOWERS’ PENSIONS OR UNMARRIED PARTNERS’ PENSIONS
    Since 31 October 2000 an attributable widow’s or
    widower’s pension or, from 15 September 2003 a partner’s
    pension, is paid for life – that is the pension does not end
    when the widow, widower or partner lives with or marries
    their new partner.
