Have your say about proposed new laws

The Commonwealth government is seeking feedback about new draft legislation that will affect many Australian veterans.

It says the proposed new laws will “simplify and harmonise” systems that oversee veterans’ entitlements, compensation and rehabilitation.

To find out more about the draft legislation and how you can provide feedback about it, visit www.dva.gov.au/legislationreform.

The proposed changes respond to criticisms and recommendations from the Royal Commission examining the treatment of those who have served.

These changes highlight the positive impact of the Royal Commission and the submissions it received from Australian veterans, their families, and veterans’ organisations.

We are proud to have supported many veterans who made submissions to the Royal Commission about processes regarding entitlements, compensation and rehabilitation.
