Also due to the unique na­ture of mil­i­tary ser­vice, it is of­ten dif­fi­cult for ADF mem­bers to ob­tain death and in­va­lid­ity cover at a rea­son­able cost.

To en­sure that ADF mem­bers con­tinue to re­ceive full death and in­va­lid­ity cover, the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment is also es­tab­lish­ing ADF Cover, which will pro­vide death and in­va­lid­ity cover con­sis­tent with that pro­vided to mem­bers of the cur­rent MSBS.

Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of ADF Su­per and ADF Cover is leg­is­la­tion that will pro­vide for sig­nif­i­cantly more flex­i­ble ser­vice for per­ma­nent ADF mem­bers.

ADF mem­bers will for the first time be able to seek part­time work ar­range­ments, sub­ject to De­fence’s ca­pa­bil­ity re­quire­ments.

This sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment to the ADF’s work­force model will pro­vide ad­di­tional flex­i­bil­ity for mem­bers of the mil­i­tary while also im­prov­ing the ADF’s abil­ity to re­cruit and re­tain per­son­nel.
