In this chapter
This chapter outlines the eligibility requirements and general features of the Defence Force Income Support Allowance which commenced on 20 September 2004.
Defence Force Income Support Allowance (DFISA)
Defence Force Income Support Allowance (DFISA) is an income support payment to be made by DVA to people whose income support payment under Social Security Law is reduced, or not payable, because of the impact of adjusted disability pension. DFISA is the difference between the person's existing entitlement, and what the entitlement would have been had adjusted DP been exempt, but was assessed in the calculation of rent assistance.
