- have Qualifying Operational Service after 31 March 1974 outside of Viet Nam, and
- are unable to work full-time because of a condition related to your Qualifying Operational Service.
Qualifying Operational Service explained
When we say full-time we mean:
- working for an average of at least 30 hours per week, or
- less than 30 hours if your employment agreement defined this lower amount of hours as full-time.
There are special rules that apply if you are or close to NZ Superannuation age.
For those in the NZ Armed Forces before 1 April 1974 or served in Viet Nam you may be eligible for Weekly Income Compensation.
