Dear

The following aged care resident receives a disability pension from DVA and sought to have this amount exempted from assessment for aged care fee purposes because the resident believed that he or she had qualifying service under section 7A of the Veterans' Entitlements Act.

Subsequent investigations have revealed that the resident does not have qualifying service and thus he or she is not entitled to the exemption.

Accordingly, I am forwarding to you details of this resident's income so that you can establish an assessment for the person as a self-funded retiree, with disability pension assessed as income.


The assessment details held by DVA for this resident will now be deleted so that henceforth the resident will be matched to the assessment you establish.

Thank you.

This DI should be read in conjunction with DI C13/98 which covers changes to aged care that have occurred since 1 October 1997.
