Information for War Pension recipients and Armed Forces Pension Scheme members living in Greece

The MoD and the Veterans Agency have published information for War Pension recipients and Armed Forces Pension Scheme members living in Greece.

The financial situation in Greece continues to be subject to change. Veterans UK is closely monitoring developments but given the recent banking restrictions being imposed by the Greek authorities, the MOD has written to all War Pension recipients and Armed Forces Pension Scheme members living in that country offering 3 options:

  • to continue to receive their pension payments into their Greek bank account
  • to temporarily hold their pension payments
  • to redirect their pension payments to another bank account (such as a UK bank account) for a temporary amount of time
