2.3.2 Claims for Compensation to be in writing

Last amended 
21 September 2017

Section 319 specifies that claims for compensation must be in writing.  This requirement may be satisfied in one of the following ways:

  • A tick in one of the boxes at question 23 on the MRCA claim form D2051; or
  • The claimant's signature on the needs assessment; or
  • Elect the benefit at the "Request for Benefits" section of the Online Single Claim Form (OSCF) for MRCA claims; or
  • A written request for compensation.

Therefore no compensation is payable until DVA has received a claim by one of the above mechanisms.
