star this property answer text <p>The Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) provides compensation for illness and injuries, including brain injuries, caused by Service from 6 April 2005. All recipients are awarded a lump sum for pain and suffering. In the event of serious injuries, an income stream, known as the Guaranteed Income Payment, is also paid. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is legally obliged to pay any AFCS award direct to the claimant. However, as part of the accompanying notification process, injured personnel and their families are advised to obtain independent financial advice. As part of the AFCS package, this includes the free Money Advice Service, set up by the Government and run by the Consumer Financial Education Body.</p><p> </p><p>Other financial tools have also been made available to the wounded sick and injured (notably Money Force). As part of the core recovery events various other education initiatives are undertaken, such as ‘you and your money’ modules. Further the MOD is working to establish a Service package that covers three core areas: financial capability education and training (throughout the Service career); financial guidance (directed towards AFCS recipients); and financial advice (provided by Independent Financial Advisors).</p><p> </p><p>In the case of serious injury, the single Service, the individual, the family and the Veterans Welfare Service work together to protect the long term interests of the individual and their family.

These have generally been managed from the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centres as most cases are resident there for extended periods if their injuries are severe.
