Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on 1 April 2014, amends the War Pensions Act 1954 in 2 ways.

First, clause 4 and Schedule 1 increase the following by 1.38% (reflecting the increase in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index (All Groups) excluding cigarettes and other tobacco products):

  • the maximum rate of a disablement pension:

  • the maximum rate of an additional pension for severe disablement:

  • clothing allowances:

  • the maximum rate of allowance for the services of attendants for disabled pensioners:

  • the maximum rate of surviving spouses' or surviving partners' pensions:

  • the maximum rates of additional parents' allowances payable to a surviving spouse or surviving partner:

  • the maximum rate of children's pensions in ordinary cases:

  • the maximum rate of war orphans' pensions:

  • the maximum rates of veterans' pensions:

  • the maximum payments on the death of a veteran or a veteran's spouse, civil union partner, or de facto partner.

Secondly, clause 5 and Schedule 2 make some additional increases to figures already increased by clause 4 and Schedule 1 in order to honour the Government's commitments in relation to the level of veterans' pensions.

The order must be presented to the House of Representatives in accordance with section 41 of the Legislation Act 2012. Under section 75C of the War Pensions Act 1954, the order will expire on the close of the period of 12 months commencing with the date on which it is presented to the House, except so far as it is expressly validated and confirmed by an Act passed before that date.
