Ch 1 Introduction


This manual is provided for delegates investigating and determining compensation claims submitted by serving and former members of the Australian Defence Force.

This overview manual serves as an introduction to the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (MRCC). There are other manuals covering the following specific areas of operations:

  • Initial Liability
  • Death claims
  • Incapacity claims and payments
  • Permanent Impairment claims and payments
  • Medical Expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Reconsideration and Appeals.

The manuals are MRCC policy which must be followed by all MRCC Delegates. They will be updated electronically from time to time. Military Compensation and Rehabilitation Instructions (MCRIs) will continue to be used for such topics as rate changes. MRCC Staff should always check that they are using the latest version of the manual.
