Veterans’ Review Board appointment

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Dan Tehan today announced a new appointment to the Veterans’ Review Board (VRB).
Ms Jane Elizabeth Anderson has been appointed as Principal Member to the VRB for a period of five years from 31 January 2018.

“Ms Anderson has served as a part time member of the VRB since 2015 and brings 17 years post admission and administrative law and practice experience to the role of Principal Member,” said Mr Tehan.

“I congratulate Ms Anderson on her appointment.”

The VRB is a tribunal created by the Australian Parliament to review decisions about Repatriation pensions (other than Service Pensions) and attendant allowance.

It is independent of the Repatriation Commission and the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

Mr Tehan also thanked outgoing Principal Member Mr Doug Humphreys OAM for the exceptional leadership he has provided since his appointment in March 2010.
