Career transition


If you’re coming to the end of your service, or you’re back in civilian life and looking for a new career, our members tell us that the RMA gives you vital contacts with former Bootnecks and organisations who can help.

Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind

Our members are all over the world. When you’re deployed, you can focus on your oppos and the job in hand, knowing we’re there to support your loved ones back home, or that we're nearby if you need us.

Practical Support

Practical Support

We help hundreds of our members every year with help and advice for everything from pensions and healthcare to coping with debt, career transition and bereavement – or just making sure you’re not alone. The support you need, whenever you need it.



Lots of you tell us that life in the Royal Marines is nomadic – but wherever you go, with nationwide branches the Royal Marines Association is a constant presence. We’re always here for you when you need help, or just want to spin dits over a drink.



Get involved and share your knowledge and experience with the next generation of Bootnecks, and support them (and their families) through the ups and downs of Corps life.
