AFF PRESS RELEASE

Change to student funding benefits Armed Forces families
The Army Families Federation (AFF) is delighted that, after much campaigning, Service families should now find it much easier to undertake distance learning while posted overseas.
Following an announcement by Universities Minister Jo Johnson, Forces families should no longer be excluded from accessing a student loan if they are not resident in the UK on the first day of their chosen course. The new rule will grant eligibility for student funding for a UK based distance learning course even if families are posted overseas while the course is still ongoing.
Championing spouse training
AFF has worked hard for some time, to improve the employment and training prospects of Army spouses. Given that spouses are unable to work in some overseas locations, they are pleased that improved training opportunities will now be available.
AFF Chief Executive Sara Baade said: “AFF is delighted with the Government’s decision to change student funding rules in order to provide Armed Forces families who are posted abroad with the same opportunities as those living in the UK, when accessing Student Finance England loans.
AFF is committed to ensuring our families are not disadvantaged due to the nature of their Service and this decision is an excellent conclusion to months of joint working with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). These changes open up a raft of opportunities for the families of serving personnel who previously might have had to forgo training whilst posted abroad; we look forward to seeing the benefits over the months and years to come.”

JCCC APP

Have you got the MOD ICE app? 20,000 others have!

The MOD ICE (In Case of Emergency) app produced by the Ministry of Defence’s Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre (JCCC) has now been downloaded 20,000 times by British service personnel and their families since its launch in October 2015.

The JCCC, part of Defence Business Services (DBS), provides a focal point for casualty administration and notification and requests for compassionate travel (for those personnel serving overseas) in respect of members of the British Armed Forces at any time and will take immediate action for service personnel and their families when an emergency occurs. JCCC offers immediate support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to all in uniform and their loved ones should an incident occur.

As part of the JCCC’s work, the team developed the MOD ICE app that offers a ‘click and call’ facility to direct the user to the most appropriate source of help if they are faced with a family emergency. The app guides the user to the correct point of contact even if the emergency is to be managed outside of JCCC’s remit, for example by service welfare or a charity partner.
Available from the Defence Gateway internet site – www.defencegateway.mod.uk - MOD ICE has reached 20,000 downloads in just nine months, but the aim is for all members of the British Armed Forces and their families members to have the app on their phone or mobile device.

To download MOD ICE for Apple or Android devices, Service Personnel need to visit Defence Gateway on the mobile device that they wish to host the app. From the App Store, they can download the free app and then repeat the action with the relevant devices of family members. MOD ICE can be downloaded multiple times from the same Defence Gateway account.

Once downloaded, the Service Person’s name, rank and service number, together with the most relevant welfare officer’s details are entered into the app. It’s then ready for use by both the Service Person and their wider family at any time of day or night – whenever it is needed.

MOD ICE runs alongside the JPA P001 card. It is imperative that Service Personnel should also remember to keep their Emergency Contact and Next of Kin details on Joint Personnel Administration (JPA) up to date and make and maintain a current Will.

FUTURE ACCOMMODATION MODEL - SURVEY

Future Accommodation Model – Survey for Service Personnel and Spouses
The Ministry of Defence is thinking about how it provides Service Personnel with accommodation in the future. This follows the SDSR commitment to make a new accommodation offer to help more personnel live in private accommodation and meet their aspirations for home ownership. The proposals are still in development. Future Accommodation Model (FAM) is still at an early stage. No decisions have been finalised, and the details are likely to change.

It is important that Service families, wherever they are in the world, have a chance to feedback their views on how they would like accommodation to be provided. Families are requested to complete the AFF survey to provide their views and feedback and to help influence the decisions being made.
Service Families Federations are hosting the Big Survey 2016 – Future of Housing. AFF has three Fitbit Flex to giveaway for those taking the survey (those wanting to be entered for a chance to win one will need to include their details at the end of the survey).
See the survey here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/affbigsurvey2016web

NATIONAL INSURANCE CREDITS FOR SPOUSES

New National Insurance Credits for Service spouses and civil partners to help protect your future State Pension

From 6 April 2016, spouses and civil partners of Service personnel will be able to apply for a new type of National Insurance (NI) credit to protect their State Pension.

The new Class 3 NI credits have been introduced in recognition of the fact that accompanying on deployment overseas may have affected a Service spouse or civil partner’s ability to work and pay NI contributions. This could potentially result in a gap in their NI record and could affect the amount of State Pension they receive in retirement. The new DWP credits have been taken forward under the Armed Forces Covenant, which states that members of the Armed Forces and their families should receive fair treatment from the nation which they serve. More information about the Armed Forces Covenant can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/policies/armed-forces-covenant. It is estimated that this could benefit up to 20,000 individuals, ensuring that they do not miss out on their State Pension.
