Mesothelioma

On 16 December 2015 the MOD changed the rules to allow veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma on or after that date the choice between receiving a one-off, tax-free lump sum payment or a traditional War Disablement Pension, which is paid in regular installments. This change is set to benefit thousands of veterans, particularly ex-naval personnel, for decades to come.

The Legion had originally asked the MOD to consider offering lump sums compensation to veterans diagnosed with the asbestos-related cancer to correct the financial disadvantage faced by some veterans when compared to their civilian counterparts.

Anyone looking to find out more about the new compensation award should contact Veterans UK.
