Which Act applies to me?
There are four Acts that provide compensation coverage for serving members 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)
- Defence Act 1903 (DA).
For injury, disease or death related to service before 1 July 2004, you are likely to be covered under the SRCA or VEA. For injury, disease or death related to service on or after 1 July 2004, you will be covered under the MRCA.
