A brief view

of payments

Getting the right financial advice is important for Veterans and their families, and it maximises your investment outcomes.  Financial plans outlines the necessary steps to ensure you have enough money for your individual goals and future.   We recommend that you find a DVA registered advocate to assist you with your payments and also seek financial advice from a suitable qualified financial advisor.

The Veteran payment

The Veteran Payment is a short-term payment made to eligible veterans who:

You may receive this payment while DVA assesses your claim for a mental health condition.

Partner payments

Your partner may receive a Veteran Payment of their own. If you are a member of a couple, you will be paid at the couples rate. DVA may pay you at the singles rate if you have to separate due to illness.


NOTE:   An advocate is trained and is bound by privacy and confidentiality to assist you in making a claim - ATDP advocates do not charge fees for lodging a claim
