Armed Forces Compensation Scheme Claims

The Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) is a no fault scheme aimed at compensating military personnel including members of the Reserve Forces for injuries caused or made worse by service. The scheme applies to injuries suffered after 6th April 2005 where the injury has been caused or made worse wholly or in part by service.

The scheme is administered by the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA) and is meant to be fair, transparent and accessible.

However, AFCS law is a very specialised area of legal practice and although the SPVA contend that applicants can navigate the scheme with no assistance and still achieve the correct outcome, the reality is very different. Military personnel will often accept awards that are incorrect due to loyalty and the belief that the system will treat them fairly.
