12.1 Overview

This chapter provides delegates with information regarding the transitional provisions contained within the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation (Consequential and Transitional) Act 2004 (the CTPA).  The transitional provisions clarify the interaction between the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (the MRCA), the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 (the VEA) and the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (the SRCA).  The purpose of the transitional provisions is to prevent anomalies and dual entitlements for people receiving, or eligible to claim, benefits under the MRCA and the VEA and/or the SRCA.  The transitional provisions do not apply to a person whose eligibility for compensation or other benefits arises only under the MRCA.

  • transitional issues relating to liability;
  • transitional issues relating to permanent impairment (PI) compensation;
  • transitional issues relating to treatment; and
