3.4.1 Parameters of a claim

Claims for liability are made under section 319 of the MRCA.  Liability may be accepted for:

  • service injury
  • service disease
  • service death
  • loss or damage to a member's medical aid


Although claims for compensation are also made under this part of the MRCA, the question of compensation is a separate issue.  Although acceptance of liability is a prerequisite for compensation to be paid, it is not an automatic entitlement even where liability is or has been accepted.


Further information about these documentary requirements are detailed in Chapter 2: Claims of the MRCA Manual.
