Defence Abuse Response Taskforce
The cut-off date for the submission of claims to the Taskforce was 30 November 2013. Given that all eligible claimants have already been required to register and submit their claim, we can no longer assist any further potential claimants.
If you have suffered loss while serving as a member of the defence force, you may be entitled to a range of benefits and compensation under Australian military compensation or veteran entitlement schemes.
It is important that you obtain independent legal advice in the early stages of the claims process and that you do not accept an offer of compensation without obtaining such advice. If you have already accepted an offer, we may still be able to improve it.
