What decisions can we review?

We can only hear cases where the law gives us this authority. The types of decisions that we most commonly review involve:

  • Claims to accept liability or entitlement for a service injury, disease or death 
  • Applications for increase in disability pension
  • Compensation for permanent impairment or incapacity for work 
  • Claims for war widow(er)’s or orphan’s pension 

These decisions are made under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA) and the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA).

The law does not allow us to review decisions made under the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related Claims) Act 1988 (DRCA). 

If you are unsure whether we can review your case, you can talk to us on 1800 550 460 or visit our Contact Us page for additional contact information.
