Getting the right financial support

Eligible veterans and families can access a range of financial support from DVA to support their wellbeing and livelihoods. This is one of the key components of the support system the department provides to help veterans in their civilian lives after service in the Australian Defence Force.

DVA provides a range of income support, compensation and other payments including for:

  • impairment
  • inability or reduced ability to work
  • means-tested income support payments
  • support for families
  • financial assistance during natural disasters.

Veterans in need of financial support can apply for assistance online through MyService or by calling DVA on 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372). Alternatively, the DVA website provides a comprehensive guide on the types of financial support available and is a great guide to help you get started.
