Service Eligibility Assistant

The Service Eligibility Assistant contains legislative instruments relating to service under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA) and Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA), and associated information.

While many service requirements are set out within the main text of the Acts, some service types, locations and periods, and the individuals and units who are known to have rendered certain types of service, are instead set out in legislative instruments.  The following types of legislative instruments relate to service under the VEA and/or MRCA:

  • Determinations of warlike, non-warlike and hazardous service
  • Declarations of peacekeeping forces
  • Instruments of allotment for duty in an operational area
  • Instruments of assignment for operational service under VEA section 6D(1)(a)
  • Determinations relating to people other than members of the forces who are:
    • Declared members or deemed to be members of the Defence Force; or
    • Deemed to have rendered continuous full-time service as members of the Defence Force.

Available instruments can be viewed via the Service Eligibility Assistant either by region or by operation. Some instruments are not publicly available because they contain personal details of individuals.

All recent instruments are also available at www.legislation.gov.au.

The Service Eligibility Assistant Understanding Service Eligibility Instruments section provides examples and explanatory information relating to instruments and their interpretation and application. It also provides military information which may generally assist in understanding the context of service eligibility requirements.

All determinations for warlike service under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 can be found here.

All determinations for non-warlike service under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 can be found here.

PLEASE NOTE that at times instruments are revoked and new instruments are issued.  While we endeavour to ensure information in the Service Eligibility Assistant is up to date, www.legislation.gov.au is the authoritative source for all current instruments.  Instruments accessed via the Service Eligibility Assistant should always be checked to ensure that they are current before being relied upon for eligibility purposes.

DVA Access ONLY - Allotment Instruments and other information

The Service Eligibility Assistant contains legislative instruments relating to service under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 (VEA) and Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA), and associated information.

While many service requirements are set out within the main text of the Acts, some service types, locations and periods, and the individuals and units who are known to have rendered certain types of service, are instead set out in legislative instruments.  The following types of legislative instruments relate to service under the VEA and/or MRCA:

  • Determinations of warlike, non-warlike and hazardous service
  • Declarations of peacekeeping forces
  • Instruments of allotment for duty in an operational area
  • Instruments of assignment for operational service under VEA section 6D(1)(a)
  • Determinations relating to people other than members of the forces who are:
    • Declared members or deemed to be members of the Defence Force; or
    • Deemed to have rendered continuous full-time service as members of the Defence Force.

Available instruments can be viewed via the Service Eligibility Assistant either by region or by operation. Some instruments are not publicly available because they contain personal details of individuals.

All recent instruments are also available at www.legislation.gov.au.

The Service Eligibility Assistant Understanding Service Eligibility Instruments section provides examples and explanatory information relating to instruments and their interpretation and application. It also provides military information which may generally assist in understanding the context of service eligibility requirements.

All determinations for warlike service under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 can be found here.

All determinations for non-warlike service under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 can be found here.

PLEASE NOTE that at times instruments are revoked and new instruments are issued.  While we endeavour to ensure information in the Service Eligibility Assistant is up to date, www.legislation.gov.au is the authoritative source for all current instruments.  Instruments accessed via the Service Eligibility Assistant should always be checked to ensure that they are current before being relied upon for eligibility purposes.
