If you receive War Pension Scheme or Armed Forces Compensation Scheme payments and are under the age of 60, you can request a war pension exemption certificate from Veterans UK.
A valid war pension exemption certificate entitles you to:
- free NHS prescriptions for your accepted disability
- free NHS wigs and fabric supports if they relate to your accepted disability
- help with dental treatment, NHS travel costs, sight test, glasses or contact lenses if the treatment is for your accepted disability
