Army families and the cost of living

The cost-of-living crisis is affecting many families in the UK and we are keen to understand any pressures that Army families may face when compared to their civilian counterparts.

We are continuously feeding back your evidence and concerns to policy makers on the issues you raise with us, which include cost of living enquiries about:

  • flight price rises and rates of Get You Home (Overseas) allowance;
  • fuel price rises and rates for travel allowances such as Get You Home Travel;
  • how energy bills are affected by Service life and frequent moves, for example having to pay cancellation charges on a fixed contract or seeing your tariff increase in your new location.

Do continue to let us know about the issues you are facing with the cost of living due to Army life – email
