Service Leaver Claiming ELC

Personnel who are still in Service, and/or in their resettlement phase, should refer to their Education Staff and the guidance on the Serving Personnel Claiming ELC page of the website here.

These guidance notes are for claimants who are no longer in Service. Please ensure you read this document before submitting a claim to your Single Service Representative. Once eligible to claim you may submit a claim up to five years (if you left on/after 1st April 2016) or up to ten years (if you left before 1st April 2016) after you leave the service.  Please read JSP 822 alongside DIN2021DIN01-052 for the expiration date of your claims particularly in respect of those service leavers who were medically discharged.

You can only make one claim per financial year (1st April to 31st March), however if you have served between 6 and 8 years you may be eligible to aggregate all three claims together subject to meeting the qualifying criteria outlined in JSP 822.  If you are claiming in the last year of scheme eligibility, study must commence before scheme expiry date.

As a Service Leaver you may be eligible to claim under the Joint Funding Initiative (PF FE/HE Scheme). For full details and to check the eligibility rules please click here.
