COMPENSATION ADVOCAY SECTION
When you need to submit your claims to the Department of Veterans Affairs, it is good to have someone to talk to who knows how it works.
Gaythorne RSL’s Compensation Advocates can help you submit your claims, tell you what happens next and explain what the DVA letters are all about.
Come in an see us, we’re here to help.
The Gaythorne RSL is the result of merging the Enoggera and Mitchelton Subbranches. To keep the peace, it was decided they would meet halfway-hence the Gaythorne Sub-Branch was born.
THE RSL MISSION STATEMENT

WHY WE DO THIS?
Most of our Advocacy Volunteer staff have experienced the confusion and ignorance that faces you when considering submitting a DVA claim. We know what it’s like!
Experience has taught us one or two things that we wished we had of known from the beginning, and we can help you to avoid the problems we faced.
