Personal Status Categories (PStat Cat)
Declaration of Personal Status Category (PStat Cat)
In order to determine eligibility for expenses, allowances and service accommodation (including any liability for charges) and to ensure that the relevant regulations are properly applied, all SP are to declare their PStat Cat on commissioning, enlistment or recall using JS Form JPAN001. Thereafter SP are required to inform their CO (or authorised representative), of any change to their personal circumstances that could affect their PStat Cat. A member of the Services who has remarried or registered a new civil partnership is to declare the PStat Cat appropriate to the current marriage/civil partnership. A change in PStat Cat is effective from the date of the change in circumstances (but see paragraph 02.0202). In considering a change of PStat Cat the CO (or authorised representative) must satisfy themselves that the change of PStat Cat is in accordance with these regulations.
For further information on Personal Status Categories, including a breakdown of each PStat Cat, refer to JSP 752, Chapter 2, Section 2.
