We are proposing to improve our information sharing about veterans and their families and whānau with some other government agencies.

Benefit to both clients and organisations
The proposed changes aim to improve services to veterans and their whānau. Many of the services, support, or entitlements to veterans and their family and whānau are based on current and historic factors in a veteran’s life. For example, if a veteran has a relationship change, or has a child in education, then the veteran’s and their family or whānau entitlements may change. If organisations have access to up-to-date and correct information about veterans they have the opportunity to improve the existing support to a veteran or offer new support if the veteran has had a change of circumstance.
The proposed changes also aim to reduce the paperwork for the veterans and to make it easier to gain support from Veterans’ Affairs and the other supporting government agencies.
There will be a public consultation
Before the Government approves the proposed Veterans’ Affairs AISA, they need to be sure that the people most impacted by it and the general public understand what is being proposed and have had the opportunity to have their concerns heard by making a submission.
The consultation period about the proposed Veterans’ Affairs AISA was between 29 August 2022 and 5pm on 7 October 2022.
