63.2.1 Benefits of operational, peacekeeping or hazardous service

Document

A person with operational, peacekeeping or hazardous service is entitled to compensation (disability pension and treatment) under the VEA for any disease or injury resulting from that service. This compensation scheme operates in a very beneficial manner because the VEA sets a low threshold for the onus of proof for determining whether a particular disease or injury has resulted from operational service (i.e. that a 'reasonable hypothesis' exists).
