The Illawarra Veterans Entitlement Service was formed in 2001 to assist free of charge ALL veterans who are ex-service or who are still serving in the Australian Defence Force. This also extends to widows and immediate family.
Our volunteer Pension Officers and Advocates help veterans and their Next of Kin with their claims for service related disability compensation.
We are 'Incorporated' in NSW and we hold charity status with the Australian Tax Office. IVES is funded solely through grants and donations.
Our volunteer Pension Officers and Advocates have undertaken specific training, and hold accreditation with the Department of Veteran Affairs TIP Scheme.
We are locally based in the Illawarra District from Helensburgh to Gerringong.
We have extended our Advocacy Outreach Service to Batemans Bay and Queanbeyan on an alternate monthly basis. On 'Advocacy Outreach' our efforts focused on assisting the remote stand alone Pension officer or advocate in any Ex Service Organisation.
