What is military compensation

We compensate veterans for injuries and illnesses resulting from their Australian Defence Force (ADF) service. Military compensation allows them to access treatment, benefits and other supports at our expense.

We use medical assessments from GPs, psychiatrists and other healthcare providers as part of our compensation claims process. These assessments help us to understand:

  • if the veteran’s injury or illness was the result of their ADF service
  • what compensation and support the veteran needs.
