6.11.3 New claims by persons who live overseas


The function of administering and determining claims by persons who live overseas rests with the RCG State or Territory (regional) office where the claim is first received. For example, Adelaide office would continue to have primary responsibility for administration of a claim which is received in that office from a claimant living outside Australia. If the claimant were subsequently to return to Australia and live in NSW, the compensation file and responsibility for administration of the claim could be transferred from Adelaide office to Sydney office in accordance with the usual procedure for transferring files.
