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. Hi All,

    Does anyone have any recent experience re claiming WPMS? I am currently assisting a claimant who has struggled for much of this year re walking or getting into a car. A request to SPVA has generated paperwork that seemingly suggest he needs to be more or less wheelchairbound and what looks like a review-by-stealth form for his acknowledged conditions that he hadn't asked for. Is this normal?

    (WPMS: War Pension Mobility Suppliment)
  2. While I was waiting for SPVA Norcross WP Dept to process my claim I submitted an application for DLA and was eventually awarded both Care & Mobility. WP then eventually decided to award me a % below which you qualify for Care & Mobility!

    It appears the criteria for qualifying for mobility component through Norcross is higher than for non-veterans!
