This Statistical Notice provides summary statistics on recipients of War Pensions, and new claims, awards and appeals made under the War Pension Scheme (WPS).
Pensions, allowances or other payments may be awarded under the WPS to eligible claimants where disablement or death occurs as a result of Service in HM Forces, prior to 6 April 2005.
Figures presented in this Statistical Notice are calculated from data stored on the Service Personnel and Veterans' Agency's War Pensions Computer System.
The Armed Forces and Reserve Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) came into force on 6 April 2005 to pay compensation for injury, illness or death caused by Service on or after that date. Summary statistics for the AFCS can be found in a separate bi-annual report.
