The Veterans Indemnity & Training Association (VITA) insurance cover limits the age of Practitioners to 85 years of age. The RSL has determined that 80 years of age is their cut-off but the RAAFA is prepared to consider Practitioners
over 80 but under 85 on a case by case basis. Any case for such consideration must be addressed in the first instance, to the State Secretary.
We do need volunteers to
be trained as Pension and Welfare Officers. The veteran community is aging and their needs are inceasing. Trained Welfare and Pension Officers are urgently needed to help cope with the increasing workload in this important are. Members intersted
in asisting in this regard are asked to contact the State Secretary.
