This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 April 2016, amend the Veterans’ Support Regulations 2014 (the principal regulations).

Regulation 42 of the principal regulations prescribes the rates of veteran’s pension payable under Part 6 of the Veterans’ Support Act 2014 (the Act). Section 170 of the Act provides for the rates of veteran’s pension to be reviewed before 1 April every year and, if the review concludes that any of the rates require adjustment under that section, to be adjusted as at 1 April. These regulations amend regulation 42 of the principal regulations to adjust the rates of veteran’s pension payable in accordance with section 170 of the Act.
