Council Tax, utility bills, groceries and rent; these are just some of the financial commitments that many Veterans face for the first time when they leave the Services. Because bills have previously been deducted from pay at source, it can be a challenge to budget for them, yet failing to do so can bring long-lasting negative consequences.
In this section we provide direction to credit unions, which can offer a wide range of affordable financial services, and to debt advice and support organisations that can give advice to avoid and, if necessary, recover from debt.
Some useful websites include:
The law about debt is different depending on whether you live in England and Wales or Scotland. If you live in Scotland, make sure you are in our Scottish site so you get the right advice.
Welcome to Scotland’s Financial Health Service website (SFHS). This Scottish Government website is the place to come if you have financial concerns or are just seeking useful, free and impartial advice which you can trust.
A number of veterans are unaware of the various benefits and other support that they may be eligable for and as such the link below will offer advice and guidance.
You may be missing out on financial help that you are entitled to through welfare benefits. The entitledto calculator can help you check what you might be able to claim.
