CUTTING RED TAPE FOR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES

 

Current serving ADF members, including Reservists, who hold a purple ADF ID card will benefit from a new DVA and Defence move to reduce red tape in the claims application process, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Senator the Hon Michael Ronaldson announced today.

Senator Ronaldson said that from 1 September 2014, ADF members will be able use their purple ADF ID Card to prove their identity for the purposes of making a DVA claim. 

“The new arrangement means a claim can commence from the point of first contact. It will streamline the current 100 point identity verification process, speeding up the process for both clients and staff.”

“This initiative recognises the unique nature of military service and demonstrates the Government’s ongoing efforts to cut red tape for veterans and their families.”
