What is the new DHOAS eligibility criteria?
From January 2023, there have been improvements to how ADF members and veterans can qualify for and access DHOAS, these are:
- Reducing the minimum qualifying period required by current ADF members from four to two years for permanent service, and from eight to four years for Reserve service.
- Removing the deadline for veterans who have left the service to access their final subsidy certificate (previously five years). Contact the Department of Veterans Affairs for more information.
