Did you know that following death the REOWS will cover subscriptions for dependents whose late spouses/partners were Lady Grover’s Fund members?
Do consider joining the LGF – subscription is only £50.75 for under 50s; and you must join before beneficiaries (your dependents) reach the age of 65. You can join during or post-Service.
This is worth up to £8,000 per annum and covers unexpected nursing costs as a consequence of illness and injury. See https://www.ladygrover.org.uk/
This week this resulted in an REOWS beneficiary (already in receipt of annuity payments) living in South Africa being put in touch with the LGF in order to cover care costs.
