Family Support Booklet

ARCO recognises the necessity for all retired personnel to ensure that personal affairs are in order, and strongly advocates that prudent personal administrative arrangements are in place for all eventualities. 

With this in mind, and in furtherance of the organisation’s objectives, in February 2020, ARCO reviewed its Family Support Booklet.

ARCO wishes to acknowledge the information and assistance provided by the Defence Forces, ARCO members, CAOGA and public bodies in the preparation of this booklet.

The booklet is dedicated to the late Colonel Harry Crowley whose original proposal led to the publication of its first edition. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.

The Family Support Booklet includes a prototype Personal Affairs Checklist, which was produced with the assistance of CAOGA.  This checklist is designed for the recording of personal affairs and papers.
