Veterans' Affairs


 

DVA Assistance - The Association has a National Coordinator and DVA trained Pensions Officers and Advocates to provide submariners (ex and serving) with free assistance in welfare and compensation matters.

The claims process, although it may appear simple, has many pitfalls and many a claim is rejected on technicalities. It is important that you seek advice when considering a claim, there is a saying in legal circles; the person that represents has a fool as his lawyer. Play safe, consult an advocate BEFORE applying for entitlements. Health & DVA - This section is aimed at keeping members current with Health & Welfare matters. It provides information on current issues, contact details and other information necessary to claim your entitlements.

DVA News - This section is aimed at keeping members current with Health & Welfare matters. It provides information on current issues, contact details and other information necessary to claim your entitlements.

Medals & Awards - This section is aimed at keeping members current with Honours and Award issues. It provides information on medals, contact details and other information necessary to claim medals. Are you entitled to a Medal that you were not advised about? It is amazing how many unclaimed medals that are out here, including some ASMs. Many Medals have been awarded after Members leave the service. It pays to check.
