MILITARY REHABILITATION AND COMPENSATION ACT 2004 - SECT 200

Choice to receive Special Rate Disability Pension

             (1)  A person who is offered the choice under this Division can choose to receive a Special Rate Disability Pension instead of compensation worked out under Division 2 of Part 4.

             (2)  A person who makes the choice cannot change it.

             (3)  However, a person to whom the Commonwealth is no longer liable to pay a Special Rate Disability Pension under section 209 is taken not to have chosen to receive the Pension.

Note:          This means that the person might still be entitled to compensation worked out under Division 2 of Part 4 or under the Return to Work Scheme in section 210.
