  • Making an application to have an injury or disease accepted under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act or Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act as having arisen out of your service
  • Making an application for an increase in your rate of pension under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act
  • Applications for intermediate and special rate pensions under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act
  • Making an application for a lump sum and/or weekly payments for service injuries or diseases under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act
  • Assisting war-widows with claims for a widows pension under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act

We can also assist you with applications for legal aid, where available, for claims arising under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act.
