Financial planning support

Help for ex-forces with financial problems.

SSAFA were very approachable and were happy to talk through how they could help.

- Amir, Army Veteran

After leaving the Forces, some ex-service personnel find themselves in financial trouble. SSAFA can give you the guidance you need.

Our caseworkers will let you know about qualified debt advisors working in your area, although they cannot give advice themselves. Once you have received specialist advice they can then look for ways to help with any priority debts – these are debts where you are at risk of losing your home or supplies of essentials such as gas or electricity.

SSAFA's services are only available to people who have received at least one day's pay from the Armed Forces (British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, Royal Marines, including Reserves), or are in the immediate family of someone who served.
