Financial help

Whether it is dealing with major life events, adapting to changes in circumstances, or paying for unexpected expenses due to a serious illness or a death in the family, you can turn to the RAF Benevolent Fund when you need it the most.

Financial help

We provide financial support in a number of areas, and more information is available within the pages in this section for those who have left the RAF and their immediate family members.

If, however, you are currently serving then find out more on how the RAF Benevolent Fund may be able to help. Whether it is help with day to day living, help with your home and accommodation, dealing with unemployment and retraining, or care home fees or bereavement the RAF Benevolent Fund may be able to assist.

Enquire about receiving help online or call our free support line on 0800 169 2942.

Please note that a capital limit of £16,000 is used when considering most applications (or £23,250 for residential / nursing care applications) and help will not normally be considered where savings exceed this, or where there is significant disposable income. However, this may be reconsidered where there are special considerations.
