New toolkit to improve understanding for veteran homelessness

Phoenix logo

The Assistant Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Matt Thistlethwaite today joined with representatives from the community housing industry sector, government and the veteran community to launch a range of veteran-specific community housing resources for providers.

DVA partnered with the Community Housing Industry Association (CHIA) to develop the resources, which provide an overview of the veteran experience of homelessness, including risk and protective factors for homelessness, service needs and available referral pathways, and how to tailor support for veterans and families.

A key component of the resources is a toolkit containing factsheets and training materials to better equip community housing providers to take into consideration the unique life experience and challenges that veterans face.

An industry standard of providing housing services to veterans has also been introduced to the sector as part of the launch.

As the peak industry body representing 170 not-for-profit community housing providers in Australia, CHIA’s knowledge and connection to providers across Australia will ensure that these resources are up to date, relevant and linked with the industry.

The veteran homelessness toolkit further progresses the Albanese Government’s commitment to address veteran homelessness. The Government is establishing the $10.0 billion Housing Australia Future Fund, which will provide a sustainable funding source to increase housing supply and improve service delivery. The Housing Australia Future Fund includes $30.0 million to build housing and fund specialist services for veterans who are experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of homelessness.

Veterans who are struggling with their living situation or are at risk of homelessness are encouraged to contact DVA on 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372) or Open Arms – Veterans & Families Counselling on 1800 011 046 who will work with them to access the most appropriate care.

To download a copy of the toolkit, visit the CHIA website. For more information, visit the homelessness support webpage on the DVA website.

Have your say in remake of DRCA Permanent Impairment Guide

Part 2 of the current Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment – Edition 2.1 applies to the assessment of Defence-related compensation claims for permanent impairment and non-economic loss made under the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related claims) Act 1988 (DRCA). 

It is due to expire on 1 April 2023, and needs to be re-made before that date so that compensation claims can continue to be assessed and determined under the DRCA.

DVA proposes to re-make Part 2 of the current Guide as a new standalone Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment.

DVA is not proposing any substantive changes in this re-make, which is effectively reproducing Part 2 of the current Guide.  This re-make is not intended to affect any veterans’ compensation entitlement outcomes. The re-make does include some minor cosmetic changes, including numbering of paragraphs and corrections to typographical errors.

The Government is presently considering a pathway to broader simplification and harmonisation of veterans’ entitlements legislation, as part of its response to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide’s Interim Report.  In light of this, it is considered timely to do a simple re-make of the current Guide at this time, noting the policy and legislation supporting assessment of permanent impairment may be considered in the future as part of this work. 

We have prepared an information document and a draft of the new DVA Guide to assist stakeholders to understand the proposed re-make and provide feedback.

Consultation documents

  • Consultation open: 6 February 2023
  • Consultation closes: 20 February 2023

Phoenix Australia - DVA Practitioner Support Service

Phoenix logo

The DVA Practitioner Support Service is a free, nation-wide service, funded by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to provide expert multidisciplinary support and guidance to health practitioners, support organisations and others working with Australian veterans with mental health problems.

Free consultations are available to all Australian practitioners and organisations with queries about veteran mental health. The DVA Practitioner Support Service involves the Health Professionals Advice Line, GP Advice Line and the General Advice Line.

Ex-service organisations (ESOs) are eligible to receive free advice/consultation from Phoenix Australia on trauma related mental health concerns.

No query is too simple or too complex, and mental health does not need to be the primary focus of your work with a client. We have a multidisciplinary team of expert consultants in veteran and military mental health who can respond to your enquiry. We will use the information you provide to direct your enquiry to the most appropriate team member to ensure that their expertise is matched to your needs.

Call 1800 VET 777 or visit https://www.phoenixaustralia.org/treatment-and-support/dva-practitioner-support-service to learn more about the service or make an enquiry.

Supporting veterans to downsize their homes

A wooden model of a house and a set of keys

The Australian Government is making some changes to make it easier for veterans and their partners who receive income support payments to sell and buy a principal home.

From 1 January 2023 onwards new rules apply when veterans and their partners sell their principal home and use the proceeds to buy a new one. For eligible veterans and war widows, the proceeds from the sale of their principal home will be exempt from assets testing for up to 24 months, to allow more time to purchase or build a new home.  Additionally the proceeds from the sale will be deemed to be earning income at the lower rate of 0.25 per cent.

The changes will make it easier for veterans and families to downsize their homes by reducing the impact of selling and buying on their income support payment rates.

For more information visit the Summary of pension rates, limits and allowances page on the DVA website.

Increase to Totally and Permanently Incapacitated payments

The Totally and Permanently Incapacitated (TPI) veterans’ payment is increasing by $1000 per year from 1 January 2023.

This increase to the TPI payment ensures veterans who are severely impacted by their Australian Defence Force (ADF) service are supported, and is paid to severely disabled veterans who are unable to have a normal working life because of a permanent incapacity resulting from their war or Defence service.

The Australian Government has committed $97.9m in funding over four years to increase the TPI payment to $1617.16 per fortnight (including the Energy Supplement); an increase of $38.46 per fortnight.  The increased amount will appear in veterans’ bank accounts from 12 January 2023 (partly at the old rate and partly at the new rate as the 12 January 2023 payday is for the period 28 December 2022 to 10 January 2023). The first full payment at the new rate will be on 25 January 2023.

The Australian Government is committed to delivering a package of practical support measures that will improve the welfare of veterans and their families, now and into the future. The increase will provide additional financial support to TPI, Totally and Temporarily Incapacitated (TTI) and Special Rate Disability Pension (SRDP) veterans and their families who are already in receipt of the payment, and for veterans who become eligible in the future.

For more information about the TPI payment visit Special and Intermediate rates | Department of Veterans' Affairs (dva.gov.au)

Workforce Incentive

The Workforce Incentive measure will encourage and support people who receive income support payments to re-enter the workforce or to increase the number of hours they work. The changes will benefit veterans and their partners who receive service pension, income support supplement or age pension from DVA and have their payments reduced to nil because they exceed the relevant income limit.

Under the new rules, if a person’s income becomes less than the income limit within two years, they won’t have to submit a full application to have their payments reinstated, and can resume receiving their pension more easily. Eligible veterans and their partners will also be able to keep their Pensioner Concession Card for two years.

The Workforce Incentive changes will take effect from 1 January 2023, and will apply to eligible people whose income support payment was reduced to nil with effect from 9 October 2022 or after.

Participating in work improves the quality of life for veterans, not only by getting a higher income, but through keeping mentally active, developing stronger social connections and remaining physically fit. Additionally, businesses will benefit from the skills and experience of older Australians, particularly to help meet the current labour and skills shortages in Australia.

The Australian Government values the contribution that all senior Australians have made, and continue to make, to our economic and social wellbeing, and will support those veterans and pensioners who wish to contribute to the workforce.
If a veterans’ employment status or other circumstances change, DVA need to be informed by:

  • ringing us on 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372)
  • using MyService
  • visiting any of our offices
  • writing to us at GPO BOX 9998 BRISBANE QLD 4001

2022 Prime Minister’s National Veterans’ Employment Awards


The 2022 Prime Minister’s National Veterans’ Employment Awards were held in Canberra on November 24 and were a huge success. The Awards recognised and celebrated employers who have supported and employed veterans and partners, and the individual contribution of veterans and partners who are succeeding in the civilian workforce and as entrepreneurs.

The event was attended by the Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Defence Personnel Matt Keogh, as well as other parliamentarians, business representatives and members of the veteran and ADF community.  The Awards highlighted the many inspiring stories of veterans and partners who are achieving great things in the civilian workforce, showcasing the depth and diversity in this cohort.

We know defence service provides individuals with highly employable skills and attributes, making them valuable assets to the civilian workforce.  This was reaffirmed in the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s latest report on the ex-serving population, which confirms most veterans have a successful transition to new employment, and is further supported by the most recent data release from the 2021 Census.  However, the transition to civilian employment can be challenging, and the recent reports remind us some veterans remain at risk of unemployment or underemployment. 

Employment providers, ex-service organisations, and employers reaffirmed this issue at the two Veterans’ Employment Roundtables held in August this year by the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Defence Personnel, in the lead up to the Government’s Jobs and Skills Summit,   where it was noted that even those who move into successful civilian careers may face challenges.  The need for  a positive narrative regarding veterans and partner employment was heard.

The Awards assist in sharing this positive message - to celebrate new employment initiatives, hear from individuals using their military experiences to thrive in the civilian workforce, and see how veteran and partner entrepreneurs are using their vast skillsets to succeed.

If you know of a veteran or partner employee going above or beyond; a veteran or partner entrepreneur succeeding in business or an employer who recognises the value of supporting veterans and partners, encourage them to nominate for 2023.  Connect with the Prime Minister’s National Veterans’ Employment Program LinkedIn profile, or go to www.veteransemployment.gov.au for more details.

Family and Domestic Violence (FDV)

It’s not just physical violence.  Be aware and stay informed to help end family and domestic violence.

Whilst we often associate family and domestic violence with physical abuse, domestic violence can present in repetitive patterns of behaviour which are emotionally debilitating for the victim-survivor and just as abusive. The aftermath of such behaviour can be traumatic and lead to low self –worth and a ‘shut-down’ from loved ones, friends and family.  In the spotlight, are three types of non-physical forms of family and domestic violence.

1. Coercive control

Coercive control is often demonstrated by the perpetrator using a pattern of controlling or manipulating behaviour that leaves the victim feeling intimidated, isolated or controlled. Some of the behaviours victims may experience  include: manipulation and deceit, possessiveness of time and attention, control over what they eat, financial control or being denied freedom of movement.

2. Technology abuse

Technology abuse is an extension of coercion or harassment. Threats made over the phone or via text, abuse over social media, someone taking over your social media accounts or tracking your location via a smart device are just some forms of tech abuse. These behaviours are a crime and should be reported to the police.

3. Financial abuse

Financial abuse can happen when a family member or partner prevents someone from having freedom over their financial decision-making, or uses their money without their consent. This includes being forced into giving up control over DVA payments, money withdrawn from accounts or loans taken up in the victim’s name without their willing consent

As an Advocate, being aware of the social environment is important to assist you in recognising signs to family and domestic violence.

What can I do?

The first step is awareness. Understand and identify the different types of family and domestic violence. Second, know there is support for people to stop their behaviour and help for people experiencing violence, including children and elders.


There are a range of training programs available to help you understand your role in stopping family and domestic violence. Further information, including training and how to find a local service, can be found on the 1800RESPECT website https://www.1800respect.org.au/


LOOK - for the signs of the different types of family and domestic violence. 

LISTEN - respectfully and understand that everyone’s experience is individual.

REFER - to Triple zero (000) in an emergency or 24/7 support service such as 1800RESPECT (1800 737 732), MensLine Australia (1300 789 978) or Open Arms (1800 011 046).

Your own personal safety is important. Where there is any real or perceived danger/threat to life, including your own, please call triple zero – 000 immediately, and ask for assistance.

An update on the Building Excellence in Support and Training grants for 2023-24

The Building Excellence in Support and Training (BEST) grant round opened on 17 January 2023 and closes on 23 February 2023. The total funding available for 2023-24 is $4.551 million and will be distributed among eligible ESOs providing compensation and wellbeing advocacy.

BEST grants provide a contribution to the salary expenses of organisations providing compensation advocacy, as well as a contribution towards administrative and equipment expenses of organisations proving wellbeing and/or compensation advocacy. BEST is an important part of DVA’s support for Ex-Service organisations that deliver services that respond to the needs of veterans and their families.

BEST Service Standards

To continue to support eligible Ex-Service organisations and veterans, service standards were introduced in the 2022-23 financial year and are detailed in the BEST grant opportunity guidelines. BEST recipients are required to commit to these standards to ensure the veteran community receives high quality support.

Key principles underpinning the standards include:

  •  Responsiveness of claims advocacy services.
    • The veteran and their family is able to access claims advocacy quickly and that the advocacy process and timeframes are transparent. This principle includes keeping veterans informed, providing assistance in a timely manner and making an initial assessment of the wellbeing needs of the veteran and their family.
  • Reliability & Accuracy of Claims Advocacy Services.
    • The veteran and their family receives a high standard of claims advocacy advice and assistance to access services and support from DVA. This principle ensures advocates are suitably trained, claims are of a high standard and submitted electronically.
  • Ease of Access to Claims Advocacy Services and Safety of Access.
    • Claims advocacy is accessible to veterans and their families and safe for them and the ESO advocate. This principle ensures access to an advocate regardless of the veteran’s location, that the veteran and advocate are physically and mentally safe and the ESO sets and communicates expectations of the advocacy role.
  • Management of Claims Advocacy Services.
    • ESO claims advocacy services are managed efficiently and effectively and veterans and their families are supported by well managed ESOs who are continuing to learn and improve. This principle ensures ESOs maintain appropriate record keeping, have professional indemnity insurance, continue professional development and manage their own feedback systems.

Consistent Reporting of ESO Workload

The BEST grants are distributed by way of a formula that is based on the compensation and wellbeing advocacy workload of each ESO.  The formula outcomes rely on workload being reported consistently by all applicants, this leads to accuracy in the calculation of the formula and the distribution of funding is based on workload.

To support ESO understanding of workload reporting DVA has provided more information in the guidelines and the application form asking applicants to report the number of claims regardless of the number of conditions in that claim. The formula is designed so that more complex claims are awarded a higher weighting within the formula. The formula has been developed to provide funding for all organisations in a fair and transparent manner that is applied consistently each year.

Supporting qualified Advocates

Advocates must be ATDP qualified to have their workload counted in the formula. In the 2020-21 funding round Advocates were advised that from January 2022 VITA insurance is only available for ATDP qualified advocates. Advocates that are not qualified are not covered for professional indemnity insurance and ineligible to have their workload counted towards BEST funding.

Advocates who are ATDP qualified will have their workload counted and advocates who are under training will have their workload attributed to their mentor. This ensures advocates who are submitting the work are insured, and recognises the important role mentors play in developing the skills of new advocates.

Other training to support advocacy

Other nationally accredited training that is related to providing advocacy services can be included this year as an eligible activity for BEST funding. Examples of this training might include first aid training, counselling courses, software courses or office administration courses.

BEST Formula updates

There have been some changes to the BEST formula weightings for specific work types in 2022-23. This is the first time the weightings have changed since 2017-18 and ensures the formula remains fit for purpose.

The changes include:

  • The weighting for MRCA primary claims has increased from 3 to 4 points to reflect the complexity of these claim types that often include multiple conditions.
  • The weighting for Multi-Act claims has increased from 4 points to 5 points to reflect the complexity of these claim types that often include multiple conditions.
  • The weighting of applications for Service Pensions has been removed as a compensation advocacy activity. Assistance with applications for a pension does not need to be completed by a compensation advocate. Assistance for service pensions should be counted toward the hours attributed to wellbeing advocacy.

Changes to Work Bonus Bank

The Australian Government is committed to delivering a package of practical support measures that will improve the welfare of veterans and their families, now and into the future.

From 1 December, veterans and their partners who are eligible for the Work Bonus will get a once only top up of $4,000 to their Work Bonus Bank balance. This means veterans and their partners will be able to earn more income from employment before their pension is affected.

To be eligible for the Work Bonus from DVA, you must receive Income Support Supplement or Service Pension and be 60 years of age, or receive Age Pension. You are not eligible for Work Bonus if you are getting the transitional rate of pension.

On 1 January 2024, the maximum Work Bonus Bank balance reverts to $7,800. If at this time, the Work Bonus Bank balance is over $7,800, it will revert back $7,800.

More information on the Work Bonus can be found on the DVA website at Work bonus | Department of Veterans' Affairs (dva.gov.au)

Important changes to some DVA correspondence


The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) recently changed the way veterans and DVA clients receive some letters. The change gives clients a better and more accessible experience when using online services.

Veterans and clients who have a MyService account have started receiving a number of letters, including letters advising of decisions and outcomes of claims, digitally in their myGov inbox.

The delivery of letters through myGov is safe and secure. To ensure veterans do not miss any correspondence, they also receive a notification via text message or email alerting them to new items in their myGov inbox. They can access their myGov inbox via any device, meaning it is accessible any time they have access to the internet.

If the DVA client has a MyService account and does not wish to receive letters through the myGov inbox, they can change their preference in MyService to ensure they continue to receive a hard copy in the mail. They can simply look for the ‘Correspondence’ button on the MyService homepage.

If the veteran does not have a MyService account, these changes will not affect them.

If you or any of the veterans you advocate for need any help or advice regarding these changes, please call us on 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372) or visit your local Veteran Access Network office.

To register for a MyService account, go to www.dva.gov.au/myservice

If you or the veteran are experiencing issues with your myGov account, please call Services Australia on 132 307.

Access to the Defence, Veterans’ and Families’ Acute Support Package


Legislation has recently passed in Parliament to enable the Defence, Veterans’ and Families’ Acute Support Package. This package expands the existing Family Support Package to provide more practical services and flexibility for families.

Requirements for veterans to have warlike service or be participating in rehabilitation will be removed. Eligibility will be expanded to working age families of veterans eligible for certain payments under all three Acts, who are at risk of or are in crisis. Working age widowed partners of veterans whose death was related to service, including suicide, under all three Acts will also now be eligible. This eligibility expansion allows veteran families to access important support when they need it most.

Support for widowed partners will be improved by allowing them to access support for two years from the date of acceptance into the program, rather than the date of death of the veteran.

Financial limits for each service category of childcare, counselling and household services will be replaced with an overall yearly cap, providing families with greater flexibility. Additionally, a range of new practical supports will be available to help families build independence and resilience including but not limited to financial literacy, mental health first aid, academic and wellbeing support for children, resilience development and counselling.

Access to the Defence, Veterans’ and Families’ Acute Support Package commences 14 October 2022.

For more information, including eligibility requirements, visit https://www.dva.gov.au/financial-support/support-families/defence-veterans-and-families-acute-support-package

Veteran Payment – Who is eligible?

Did you know that veterans who have submitted a claim for a mental health condition under either the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related Claims) Act 1988 (DRCA) or the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA) may be eligible for the Veteran Payment.

The Veteran Payment is a short-term payment made available for eligible veterans if:

  • They are unable to work more than eight hours a week, and
  • Their income and assets are under means testing limits, and
  • They are below the pension age

If the veteran is a member of a couple, the partner may also be eligible for the Veteran Payment.

The Veteran Payment is accessible while a veteran’s mental health claim is being assessed and will continue until an outcome is determined. If the claim is approved, they will move to the relevant payment or benefit. If the mental health claim is not approved, the Veteran Payment will continue for 42 days after they have been notified of an outcome. This can be extended in special circumstances. They will then need to apply for an appropriate Services Australia income support payment if required. DVA can assist with this process.   

Applying for the Veteran Payment is easy and should be done at the same time as you are assisting the veteran to submit their claim for a mental health condition. If the claim is being submitted online via MyService, the question will ask if the veteran wishes to apply for the Veteran Payment during the completion of the online form. If you are completing a paper form on behalf of the veteran, you will be directed to complete a D9333 Veteran Payment Details form.

For further questions about eligibility for the Veteran Payment, visit  https://www.dva.gov.au/financial-support/income-support/support-when-you-cannot-work/veteran-payment-overview

Improvements to Incapacity claims in MyService


Incapacity annual reviews and change of circumstances are now in MyService

MyService continues to improve and expand, making it easier for veterans to do their DVA business online.  If veterans receive an Incapacity Payment or are applying for it, some new features in MyService will make it simpler for them.

MyService already enables veterans to submit a claim for Incapacity Payment. Information and supporting documents required to prepare their claim are explained in greater detail and they will have the option to let us know if they’d like to receive interim payments as part of the new improvements.

When they’ve submitted their claim, MyService will display a claim ID and claim status against the claim.  This feature only applies if the Incapacity claim has been submitted using MyService after the new features are introduced.

New features are also coming to allow veterans to upload supporting documents for their incapacity claim after the claim has been submitted, and they’ll be able to advise us online of any changes to their circumstances that may affect their claim.

What if the veteran started their claim before these new features were released?

If veterans started and saved their claim before these new features were released, their claim will still appear on their Claims page in MyService with an “Incomplete” status.  Veterans can resume their claim as usual to complete and submit.

Veterans may notice changes to some of the questions in their claim so we recommend that they review the responses they’ve provided just as they would before these new features became available.  Veterans will need to respond to any remaining questions in order to finalise and submit their claim.


Incapacity Payments annual review of circumstances

If veterans receive an Incapacity Payment and they have a MyService account, they can now complete their Annual Review of Circumstances online using MyService.  Completing the review online gives the veteran greater flexibility to provide us with more information, it’s faster, and the veteran will always have a record of their review in MyService.

When the veteran’s review date is approaching, if they have a MyService account we’ll send them a notification in their myGov inbox 28 days before their review is due to be completed.

When the veteran signs in to MyService, the task panel on their home page will indicate that they have a task to be completed.  If they happen to forget to complete their review, we’ll send a reminder notification in the veteran’s myGov inbox 7 days before the task due date.

If veterans receive a notification from us and they’d prefer to complete their review manually, they can download the form D1352 Annual Review of circumstances from the DVA website or call DVA on 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372) and we can post you one.  When the veteran has completed the form, they can send it to us by post or email using the addresses on the form.

If a veteran doesn’t have a MyService account, we’ll still send their Annual Review of Circumstances form in the post or email.

If veterans need help with their claim or annual review, they can call us on 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372) and ask for “Incapacity Payments”. 

Australian Defence Veterans’ Covenant / Veteran Recognition


The Australian Defence Veterans’ Covenant encourages Australians to recognise and acknowledge the unique nature of military service and to support veterans and their families. The Oath, Veteran Card and Lapel Pin underpin the Covenant and provide further recognition and easier identification of veterans.
