Mururoa test Veterans Forums 2019

The Mururoa Nuclear Veterans Group Inc, and the RNZRSA are conducting a further series of forums in 2019. These are a follow on from those conducted earlier this year.

As before, the purpose of the forums is to inform and enlighten Mururoa test Veterans of the progress towards research and entitlements available, and to discuss possible genetic defects and likely resolution to this possible outcome. Outlined at each forum will be veterans’ entitlements, the difference between the two acts and how transferring from the old act to the new act, should not financially disadvantage anyone and in most cases is to the veterans benefit. There will be a discussion regarding claims declined under the old act can be resubmitted as a new claim.

They are also interested in information on exposure to toxins: common sense stuff about what veterans were exposed to in daily life at sea; paint, solvents, asbestos, fumes, cigarette smoke and alcohol, all of which can lead to medical complications in later life.

An RNZRSA Advisor/Advocate, Mururoa Nuclear Veterans Group Inc Officers, and RSA District Presidents and Support Advisors will be in attendance at each location.

The meetings are open to all serving and ex serving personnel.
