Veterans' Legislation Reform – Exposure Draft Consultation

Last updated:

Creating a simpler, easier to use system for the veteran community.

The Government is committed to ensuring that Defence personnel, veterans and their families are well looked after.

Highlighted by the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide in its Interim Report, and fully supported by the Government , we are simplifying and harmonising veterans’ legislation that governs compensation and rehabilitation, so veterans and their families can more easily get the support they are entitled to.

We want your feedback on the draft Veterans' Entitlements, Treatment and Support (Simplification and Harmonisation) Bill 2024. Here you can review the proposed changes, understand what's different and why, learn how changes may impact you, and of course, get involved and provide feedback. An information booklet and Frequently Asked Questions are also available.

Submissions can be provided until 28 April 2024.
