Further to the CSC in Banking etc

 Dear ADSO Members,

All will undoubtedly recall that late last year we issued a joint ADSO/RSL Media Statement calling on the Government to amend the Royal Commission’s Terms of Reference into Banking and Super to include an examination of the military superannuation funds administered by the Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation.

Well, this afternoon, representing ADSO as a whole, I was invited, along with the National President RSL, to the Shadow DVA Minister’s office for a preview of what the Opposition planned to do in that regard. As we found out, their decision was to proactively support the joint advocacy of ADSO/RSL to include CSC in the Royal Commission’s Terms of Reference by way of formally writing to both the Treasurer and to the Minister for Veterans Affair – copies of those letters are below.

Dear ADSO Members,

Below is a copy of the covering email I’ll be sending out along with the Joint RSL/ADSO Media Statement very soon. Everything should be out in cyberspace to the media plus all Federal politicians around 1400. The Statement will be posted on the ADSO web site sometime this afternoon as well. As they deem appropriate, ADSO Alliance partners are cordially requested to do the same on individual Association sites.

Also attached herein are a series of suggested dot points that could be used to start conversations among your members and potentially with local politicians as and when opportunities arise. Your Association members who may have experienced issues with CSC should be encouraged to provide feedback comments via email to either or ComSuper-Military Entitlements at
