Schemes for serving personnel

If you or a partner is serving in the RAF, there are two specific schemes you may want to subscribe to.

RAF Reserves

RAF Dependants Fund

The RAF Dependants Fund provides a single tax-free payment of up to £17,500 for the immediate need of widows, widowers, dependent children, or other nominated beneficiaries should the subscriber die, on or off duty. This is available for all regular and reserve personnel and is put in place as an opportunity to protect the families of RAF personnel.

Full-time RAF (including Reserve) personnel can sign up at the link below or complete an RAF Form 7230 (available from Unit HR).

Guidance on the scheme can be found in AP7005 Leaflet 208.

Part Time Volunteer Reserve personnel, or those on attendance based pay, should complete RAF Reserves Form 7230 which is contained within AP3392 Vol 7 Part 2 Chapter 2 Section 5 and forward it to the address contained within that guidance.

The Dependants Income Trust (Dincome) 

This is designed for subscribers to the RAF Dependants Fund, who are serving on full-time permanent contracts, to make much greater provision for their partners and children in the event of death. Dincome is an extremely popular, unique, and inexpensive assurance scheme designed for the Royal Air Force. 

The benefits provide an additional tax-free capital sum followed by a monthly tax-free income. Guidance on the scheme can be found in AP7005 Leaflet 209.

Injury and Death in Service

We can support anyone who is faced with a death or a disabling injury while serving in the RAF. It doesn't have to happen while on duty. In addition to providing help via the RAF Dependants Fund, we can offer help with immediate needs, retraining and housing.
