Welcome to the Veterans’ Review Board

We are a specialist tribunal that delivers justice to veterans, current serving members and their families. We take a fresh look at decisions about veterans’ entitlements and compensation and, as independent decision-makers, we can assist in resolving disputes fairly, justly, informally, economically and quickly.
