7.16 Claims by Dependants

Last amended: 9 April 2013

Claims for compensation in respect of death can be divided into two types:

  • Claims where the death is the result of a disease (or possibly, delayed effects of a traumatic injury) for which the Commonwealth has already accepted liability for the injury or disease.
  • Claims where there is no prior claim for injury, i.e. the nexus between the known cause of death and ADF service has not already been the subject of a determination prior to the request for compensation following death.
