In 2017, the long-standing plea for Equal Pensions allowed those Gurkha Veterans who enlisted from 1993 and those discharged from 1997 to transfer their Gurkha Pensions to the Armed Forces Pension Scheme.  

However, in doing so, they were denied the full benefits.  As a result, they have been penalised, with those qualifying for immediate pension losing on average 16 years of pensionable service, so many are worse off than they were in the Gurkha Pension Scheme.

Such Gurkha veterans and their families living in UK and worldwide are denied their full right are experiencing hardship as a result.

Additionally, Gurkha veterans discharged prior to 1 July 1997 do not receive pensions equal to other British Army veterans.

Please support the request of all Ex Gurkha Soldiers who served the British Army.
