Pensions & Advocacy

If you have an injury or disease that you think is related to your service, RSL Wide Bay & Burnett District has trained Entitlement Advisors and/or Advocates that can assist you in your claim for entitlements and on appeal of claims.

It does not matter which compensation Act you come under, our Pension Officers and Advocates are trained under the Department of Veterans’ Affairs – National Training and Information Program (“DVA-TIP”) in the Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Act, the Veterans’ Entitlement Act and the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act.

There is no cost for this service and you do not have to be a member of the League – just wearing the uniform is good enough.
