Jaei-lea Bedford, the pensions and public relations officer for the Northern Suburbs Veterans Support Centre based in Quinns Rocks, said the centre aimed to provide free, confidential pension and welfare information for all veterans, service members and their dependents.
“It is an invaluable service for Defence members and their families,” Ms Bedford said.
“We operate an accessible pension and welfare service that provides a central reference point for all serving, ex-service defence members in the northern suburbs.
“We provide competent management of pension and welfare services in accordance with Department of Veterans Affairs policy and practice.”
