War widows can expect substantial increases in their entitlements when the Ministry of Defence announces the results of a review of armed forces pensions early next week, it was reported.

 

The Sunday Mirror claimed that widows and widowers of those killed in action would see their pensions double, while unmarried partners would have a right to death-in-service payments for the first time.

 

The Ministry of Defence confirmed that the results of the review would be announced within the next few days, but refused to give any indication of what they would be.

 

The review of military pension schemes began in 1998 and is expected to usher in the biggest overhaul of the benefits for at least a generation.

 

In recent years, the MoD has faced criticism over the level of payments to spouses of troops who die in action, with former Chief of Defence Staff Field Marshal Lord Vincent of Coleshill leading protests in the House of Lords.
