Overseas Nursery Authority - Rename From Overseas Nursery Allowance

Parents of 3 & 4 year olds in overseas locations where MOD schools and settings are not available can apply for reimbursement of nursery fees by means of Overseas Nursery Allowance (ONA)

Formerly referred to as ISODET Nursery Allowance, Overseas Nursery Allowance has been mislabelled. It has never been an allowance, but rather a reimbursement of fees paid.

Following consultation with stakeholders across all three Services and Families Federations it was decided that Overseas Nursery Allowance, moving forward, will be known as Overseas Nursery Authority to avoid confusion.

The application process will not change. Parents will continue to apply via Army Res and if approved, are issued with an Authority to claim.

Overseas Nursery Authority DIN (2020DIN01-046) refers and information can also be found at DCYP GOV.UK webpage. To visit this page click HERE
