Armed Forces Independence Payment - How do I challenge an Armed Forces Independence Payment decision?

The Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) is designed to provide financial support to service personnel and veterans seriously injured as a result of service to cover the extra costs they may have as a result of their injury.

How do I challenge an Armed Forces Independence Payment decision?

If your claim is unsuccessful, you can ask Veterans UK to reconsider their decision.

You may appeal if your claim was rejected or if you think the type of award you’ve been given is wrong - for example, if you don’t think your disability has been correctly assessed.

Contact the Veterans UK Helpline on 0808 1914 218  for information on challenging a decision or see the Veterans UK website.
