6.5.15 Dual Eligibility Under the VEA and MRCA

Section 15 of the MRC(CATP) Act 2004 states that where a person is eligible for incapacity payments under the MRCA and loss of earnings or temporary incapacity allowance under the VEA, or incapacity payments under the SRCA, they should only receive incapacity payments under the MRCA.

Similarly, where a person is eligible for Intermediate or Special Rate pension under the VEA and incapacity payments under MRCA, the person should have their VEA pension limited by any component above the General Rate of disability pension, on a dollar for dollar basis.
