Compensation recovery assessment rules apply to Veteran payment where the Veteran Payment recipient is under Age Pension age.  Veteran Payment may not be payable if the person or their partner fail to take reasonable action to claim, or obtain the compensation to which they may be entitled.

If a person receives compensation in the form of a lump sum, a compensation affected pension is not payable to the person for the lump sum preclusion period.
