Pensions

Injured in the ADF?

If you are a Veteran or current/former ADF member, and have an injury or illness causally related to your ADF service, or you were discharged on medical grounds, you may be entitled to benefits you didn’t even know about.

There are four Acts that provide compensation coverage for current and former members of the ADF. They are:

• Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA)
• Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRCA)
• Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA)

Which Act applies to me? Follow this link to an Eligibility comparison table http://www.dva.gov.au/serving_members/adf/rehab_comp/Pages/which act.aspx

For further information on the VEA, SRCA & MRCA, go the Department of Veterans’ Affairs website at www.dva.gov.au.

Pension and Welfare officers are available for assistance at Sub-Branch Offices.
