Ch 2 Claims


The MRCA Claiming Process chart shows the claims process under the new Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA). The sequence of the process is shown in the first column of boxes. The principal procedures associated with each stage of the claims process are shown in the second column of boxes. Secondary procedures or explanatory notes are shown to the right of the second column.

The second column shows some of the procedures, tools and outcomes associated with each stage of the claim. For instance, the determination of liability is conducted by applying one of two standards of proof – one associated with peacetime service, the other with warlike and non-warlike service. This determines which of the two Statements of Principles for a particular condition will apply to the claim.  This is the same as under the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA).
