Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Omnibus) Act 2018

The Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Omnibus) Act 2018 (the Act) received Royal Assent on 25 October 2018 and commenced on 26 October 2018.

This Act implements three new measures, including two measures intended to streamline the process for compensation claims made by veterans or their dependents and streamline assessment of the income test for Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) income support clients when applying the income test. The other measure gives the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (MRCC) broader ability to obtain information under the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related Claims) Act 1988 when determining claims.
