Financial Boost for Veterans

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Warren Snowdon, said more than 200,000 service pensioners and war widows have received a household assistance advance payment of $250 for singles or $380 for couples combined.

Veterans and war widows received these payments straight into their bank accounts, ahead of the carbon price introduction on 1 July.

As well as this, more than 110,000 veterans and their families, including eligible DVA Disability pensioners and Seniors Supplement recipients, also received a lump sum payment ranging from $30 to $380.

From March next year eligible members of the veteran and defence community will receive an ongoing boost to their payments.
