61.1.4 Non-Defence Force personnel


If a claimant does not fall within one of the listed categories of Defence Force personnel at the date of the injury, disease or loss, liability will be rejected on the basis that the claimant is not an ADF employee under the SRC Act.  However, the claimant may possibly be a non-military employee of the Commonwealth or of a licensed corporation and therefore entitled to compensation as an 'employee' under the SRC Act. Such employees include official war artists and entertainers engaged by the ADF who have coverage under SRCA from December 2015.  In such cases, the claim must be referred to Comcare or the relevant licensed corporation for attention.
