Notes

These notes relate to the DVA Rates - January 1994 to after January 1995:

Service Pensions are the same rate as Age Pensions.

Notes Explanation
A These rates are indexed each March and September.
B These rates are indexed each September.

EDA payment was introduced on 1 December 1988. It is payable to extremely disabled veterans who:

  • are receiving 100% Disability Pension,
  • have reached retiring age,
  • are not receiving an Intermediate or Special Rate Pension, and
  • satisfy medical criteria.

The EDA is payable at 50% of the general rate and is treated as income for social security purposes.

D From 1 November 1986, Social Security Pension is payable subject to a ceiling of $120.10 a fortnight to recipients of WWP.
E These rates are indexed each January.
F Domestic allowance is now absorbed into the basic pension, but still shown separately by DVA.
