WELFARE SUPPORT & PENSION AGENCY
The City of Wollongong RSL sub-Branch is supported in its advocacy role by the Illawarra Veterans Entitlement Service (IVES).
The Illawarra Veterans’ Entitlement Service (IVES) was formed to assist all Illawarra veterans, including those who are ex-service and those still serving in the Australian Defence Force, with their Pension or Disability Claim process – free of charge. This assistance is also extended to widows and the immediate family.
As part of the Returned & Services League of Australia (New South Wales branch), our sub-Branch is dedicated to the care, health and wellbeing of not only our sub-Branch Members but also all returned and ex-members of the Australian Defence Force, and Australian Merchant Navy. This is a key part of our mission and core business.
Our sub-Branch Welfare Team provides a variety of services including (but not limited to) hospital and nursing home visits, funeral tributes, and Christmas hampers.
Our welfare team are ready to assist our sub-Branch members and their families, especially in times of need.
