The Armed Forces

Banking in line with your needs

Whether you’re in, or have left, the Armed Forces1, we’ve got a range of services to help you square away your banking needs. From the beginning of your military career until after you leave, we’re here to support you.

Barclays pledge

Our pledge to you

We signed the Armed Forces Covenant, which means we’ve pledged to make sure those who serve, or have served – and their families – are treated fairly and their everyday lives are not disadvantaged.

We fulfil this pledge through Military & Veterans Outreach (MVO), which provides support and opportunities for serving personnel, veterans, reservists, and the wider military family. In recognition of our support to the Armed Forces community, we were awarded the MOD’s Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award.

Support when you need it

Getting on the property ladder

We support the government-backed Forces Help to Buy scheme, which lets you borrow up to 50% of your salary to use as a deposit to buy a home.

Tailored loan policy

We have a tailored loan policy that allows you to apply without a UK address history - you can use your British Forces Post Office address instead.

Tailored business support for the armed forces community

Left the Armed Forces and got a business, or planning to set one up? We’ve got lots of useful tools and information that could help.
