Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Omnibus) Bill 2018

The Bill was passed in the House of Representatives on 17 October 2018 and introduced into and passed in the Senate on 18 October 2018.

This Bill will implement 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.
