EfVA works on behalf of UK Armed Forces Veterans who in the period 1949 to end of Tax Year March 1975 completed less than 22 years service (16 years for commissioned officers) the Association conducts a campaign seeking to rectify the inequality in occupational pro-rata pensions currently denied by Government. In many cases this same anomaly also applies to those who served for a minimum of a further 2 years beyond April 1975.
EfVA also seeks to provide advice to Veterans and their families whenever and however they are experiencing difficulty.
