The Age Service Pension is paid to veterans, and to eligible partners, widows and widowers. The pension is income and assets tested in the same manner as the Age Pension.
There is also a Disability Pension provided by DVA to compensate veterans, the amount paid being dependent on the degree of disability.
If a Veteran dies due to war caused disease or injury their widow may be entitled to a pension known as the War Widows Pension. Receipt of the War Widows Pension automatically provides you with the Gold Card.
This pension is not taxable, nor income and assets tested, and may be paid to a legally married spouse or defacto.
The Invalidity Service Pension is a payment to a Veteran who cannot work due to an incapacity, which is not as a result of war and who has not reached the Age Service Pension age.

I am a retired company accountant and have been comfortably living off reasonable interest and dividends until recently. A friend recommended Peter so we sought his advice to deal with the current and probably long term dilemma of low interest rates. Peter has provided my family with invaluable advice for the management of my investments both inside and outside Super.
