7.6.1 Late Claims for Compensation

With respect to late claims for compensation – i.e. those made years after the death – delegates should not under any circumstances attempt to deny claims of dependants of a person (particularly dependants of a member who died after discharge) merely on the basis that the notification was late. The merits of the case must be judged solely on the basis of the evidence relating to relationship and economic dependency at the time of death.
