Examples for Former Declared Members

6.9.4.1 Former Declared member in paid civilian work (non CTAS)

Former Declared member sustained an injury while undertaking a photographic assignment for the ADF in Afghanistan. Prior to his assignment he had full time civilian employment as a photographer earning $650.00 per week. His injury has now rendered him partially incapacitated. He is able to work 20 hours per week for which he receives $346.66.

Note:

His NE is based on the example period, which is derived from the latest period of 2 weeks during which the person was continuously engaged in civilian work and ending before the person last ceased to be a Declared member or any other period the delegate considers is reasonable. In this case the example period is the 2-week period prior to him undertaking the assignment.

civilian pay & allowances - actual civilian pay and allowance

($650.00 - $346.66) =

$303.34

6.9.4.2 Former Declared member not in paid civilian work who did not undergo CTAS who is 16 years or older

Former Declared member not in paid civilian work, and not a CTAS Declared member, who is 16 years or older.

A member of philanthropic organisation was injured whilst assisting the ADF. He had no civilian employment prior to rendering assistance to the ADF. His NE is determined having regard to his qualifications, skills and experience as identified via a rehabilitation assessment. For example, the rehabilitation assessment identified that the person had a Heavy Bus licence, and had worked previously as a Bus Driver earning $742.97 per week. Therefore his NE is $742.97 per week.

civilian pay & allowances - actual civilian pay and allowance

Note:

Where the rehabilitation assessment cannot readily identify qualifications, skills and experience relevant to the labour market then the delegate may determine NE as equal to the National Minimum Wage.

6.9.4.3 Former Declared member not in paid civilian work under the age 16

Former Declared member not in paid civilian work under the age 16.

NE is nil where the person is less that 16 years of age and has no civilian employment.

6.9.4.4 Former Declared Member who Undertook CTAS

This scenario covers former members who undertook CTAS after discharge from the Permanent Forces, and as a result are treated as Declared members for the purpose of the MRCA. NE is calculated based on the former members full-time ADF rate of pay.
