Armed Forces Compensation Scheme - Armed Forces Compensation Scheme and Motability

The Armed Forces Compensation Scheme provides financial help if you have an illness or injury caused by service in the Armed Forces on or after 6 April 2005.

Armed Forces Compensation Scheme and Motability

You can use some of your payment (an amount equivalent to the Disability Living Allowance high rate mobility component or Personal Independence Payment enhanced rate mobility component or Adult Disability Payment enhanced rate mobility component) towards the hire or hire-purchase of a vehicle through the Motability scheme.

You usually have to pay a deposit but might get help with this.

If you lease the car, then insurance, breakdown cover and repairs are included. Mileage up to a certain limit is included in the price as well.

If you cannot drive, or prefer not to drive, you can name up to two other people as drivers.

Motability also offers a contract hire scheme for powered wheelchairs or scooters.

For more information, see the Motability website or phone 0300 456 4566 or text phone 0300 037 0100.
