then consider Defence Health Term Life Insurance for their protection. It will even cover you on warlike operations if you

MEMBERS in receipt of Defence Home Owner
Assistance Scheme (DHOAS) subsidy or who have
applied for the subsidy before receiving posting
orders need to be mindful of the occupancy obliga-
tion provided under DHOAS legislation.
As the peak Christmas-New Year posting peri-
od comes closer members need to be aware of the
requirement to occupy a DHOAS property for 12
months from when the subsidy commences.
Director Relocations and Housing Alan
McClelland said payments would not be jeopardised
if members intend to occupy the home for 12 months
but then receive a new posting order.
The Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) can
approve a reduced period of occupancy if a member
is being posted and service requirements prevent
them from occupying a DHOAS property for the full
Additionally, Mr McClelland said members who
receive a posting order and are unable to move into
the DHOAS home before that posting takes effect
could be adversely affected.
"[They] will either not be eligible for subsidy, or
will have their subsidy payments ceased, depending
on the member's situation," Mr McClelland said.
Members are encouraged to notify DVA of any
change in circumstances by lodging a Change of
Circumstances form, which can be downloaded from
the DHOAS website.
Where postings are concerned, members are
requested to notify DVA of their posting before they
vacate the DHOAS subsidised property.
For further information or advice about DHOAS and its
occupancy provisions members can call a subsidy adviser
on 1300 424 627 before they take up their posting,
or make changes to their DHOAS loan. Change of
Circumstances form is available at www.dhoas.gov.au
BE AWARE: Members in receipt of DHOAS
subsidy who have been posted are reminded to
update their details with DVA.
