On a similar matter but from a different constituent, claims are made that a New Zealand veteran’s War Disablement Pension is considered as income by Centrelink, but exempt from assessment as income by the ATO.
Can you confirm this?
Further, she claims NZ veterans, to their detriment, are not eligible to the same health care entitlements as other allied veterans living in Australia.
Is it possible to get a comparison chart of the treaties applicable to NZ and other allied veterans with respect to health care entitlements?
Thanks in advance for your help with this matter.
