Armed Forces Compensation Scheme statistics: index

Statistics on compensation recipients and new claims, awards and appeals made under the Armed Forces and Reserve Forces Compensation Scheme.

This annual bulletin provides summary statistics on claims and awards made under the Armed Forces and Reserve Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS). The AFCS is a no-fault scheme, which financially compensates for injury/illness and death caused by service in the UK Armed Forces on or after 6 April 2005.

Note that revisions have been made to historical clearance times statistics and therefore figures in the 2018/19 Statistical Bulletin supersedes all previously published statistics.

Upcoming release dates for this publication are available here.
