What is a DVA claim and who can make a DVA claim?

Who is entitled to submit a DVA initial liability claim?

A DVA Initial Liability Claim is an application submitted to DVA by an ADF veteran, either retired or currently serving, requesting DVA accept liability for injuries. and medical conditions due to service rendered to the Australian Defence Force.

Ideally these claims will provide assistance to the veteran and cover the associated costs of allied health services that treat eligible Veterans. This financial assistance can include the medical, hospital and any other treatment cost that is incurred by a Veteran in their rehabilitation process.

A DVA claim can also be made to help support a Veteran whose capacity to work in the civilian context has been impacted by their ailments, through welfare programs such as the SRDP or the Incapacity Payment program. Both of these types of support can be extremely beneficial to a Veteran and have been earnt thanks to their acts of service for their country.

The DVA claim process is open to any veteran of the ADF. However, as with most financial legislation, the claim must meet certain criteria and factors. These criteria and factors can be found here at the DVA Click website.

Most advocates will submit the DVA claims you would like through a system called PRODA – which will not show on your MYGOV immediately.
