Please Give War Widows an Early Christmas Present

Christmas Candles

As we enter this festive season the War Widows’ Association calls upon the Government to demonstrate compassion and do what is right. We implore the Government to reinstate the War Widow(er)s Compensation Pension to all war widow(er)s who had to surrender their compensation on remarriage or co-habitation. The War Widows’ Compensation Pension was provided by the Government as a no-fault compensation payment to the spouse or recognised partner of our armed forces personnel where their death was attributed to their service. The number of War Widow(er)s impacted is small and the cost to reinstate this compensation would be minimal.
