The Australian Federation of Totally & Permanently Incapacitated Ex-Servicemen & Women has begun its campaign to lobby the Federal Government for fair economic loss compensation to be afforded to our most disabled Veterans (Special Rate/Totally & Permanently Incapacitated (SR/TPI)) by adjusting their compensation payment to reflect today’s standard of living.
The TPI Federation President, Tony Mogridge, has launched The Federation’s campaign by:
- releasing a Media Statement dated 15 August 2015 (attached),
- initiating a public petition – Fair Compensation for our Most Disabled Diggers and
- releasing an explanatory awareness SR/TPI video.
All of this material is consolidated on our ADSO website here
Please distribute the campaign details to your organisational network (website, facebook, emails, Newsletters, wom etc) with encouragement to sign the petition and to join as a volunteer our ADSO Action Groups in your State and Federal Electorate. IMO to be an effective petition that will influence the Government and Parliament we need over 100,000 signatures.
This is an ADSO priority 1 policy issue for the next Federal Election. The other ADSO major policies can be seen here on page 11.
The ADSO Action Group network is being reactivated and strengthened in preparation for that Election.
