'Whole of Veteran' Needs -
- The Repatriation Commission has an obligation to consider the whole of veteran's needs and to provide the necessary assistance within its power to ensure those needs are met.
- Therefore, if at the end of the decision making process, a veteran does not meet all of the requirements for a Special Rate pension or the Intermediate Rate pension, the veteran should be informed about assistance with placement into a rehabilitation or vocational training program under the VVRS. This scheme contains safeguards in relation to the veteran's ongoing entitlement to pension. Entry into a rehabilitation or vocational training program will be voluntary and is not a prerequisite for obtaining Special Rate pension or Intermediate Rate pension. More ?
