Chapter 80 Defence Abuse Reparation Scheme payments


Reparation Payments made by the Defence Abuse Response Taskforce (DART) under the Defence Abuse Reparation Scheme are not compensation payments. Receipt of a Reparation Payment does not require the recipient to waive any legal rights and does not affect her or his right to take other action or access other entitlements. Reparation Payments therefore have no impact on liability or compensation under the SRCA.

The Defence Abuse Response Taskforce ceased on 31 August 2016.

Reparation payments from the DART were assessed at a different standard of proof to claims under legislation administered by DVA. Accordingly, the acceptance of a claimant’s contentions by the DART does not mean that a claim would be successful under the SRCA, MRCA or VEA.
