Improved military compensation arrangements
The veteran and defence communities and their families are set to benefit from new military compensation arrangements passed through Parliament recently.
The changes include increased compensation, expanded eligibility criteria and improvements to existing military compensation arrangements under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act (2004) from 1 July 2013.
This follows recommendations accepted by the Government as part of the recent Review of Military Compensation Arrangements.
Implementation of the recommendations is ongoing.
For information on the Review, including a full list of improvements applying from 1 July, visit the DVA website.
