5.7.4 Reassessment of NEL scores given for an injury

Last amended 
17 March 2023

An entitlement to a further NEL payment under section 27 may arise when the veteran’s degree of impairment has increased by the requisite degree.

When considering an entitlement to a further NEL payment in these circumstances, a veteran cannot be compensated more than the maximum amount in each table. This means that no score higher than 5 in each of the sections pain, suffering, mobility, social relationships, recreation and leisure activities, and, no score higher than 3 for other loss, can be determined for each separate injury.
