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

• Defence Act 1903 (DA)
• Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA)
• Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act (Defence Related Claims) 1988 (DRCA)
• Military Compensation Act 1994 (MCA)
• Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA)

The pension officer is available by appointment only on Thursdays at the Sub Branch office between the hours of 10:30am and 1:30pm. Please call Bill Forsbey on 0411 266 932 or email to pensions@ccdcrsl.org.au to arrange an appointment time and date.
