New veterans cards rolled out to service leavers

British army uniform

A new card for armed forces veterans, which will help them access specialist support and services, has started to be issued to service leavers.

From 29 January 2024, any personnel who have left the military since December 2018 will automatically be given one of the new cards, which will allow them to maintain a tangible link to their career in the forces.

The cards allow veterans to easily verify their service to the NHS, their local authority, and charities, helping them to access support and services where needed.

All other veterans will be able to apply for a new card by the end of this year, to mark their time in the armed forces.
