Veterans' Indemnity and Training Association Inc

Membership of VITA is open to all bona fide Ex-Service Organisations providing assistance to veterans and their dependants in relation to claims, welfare and appeals.  This assistance must be provided free of charge or with only a minor administrative fee.

The objectives of VITA are to provide member organisations with adequate professional indemnity insurance cover and to promote the professional standards and training of practitioners.  This latter objective is pursued through the Training and Information Program which is a partnership between Ex-Service Organisations and the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

This is not accident or director's insurance, but solely professional indemnity insurance for pensions and advocacy practitioners working under the auspices of organisations which belong to VITA.

The cost of membership is currently $200 pa for each member organisation, regardless of the number of State Branches or Sub Branches.

The Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia is a member of VITA, and fully supports its objectives.  TIP-trained Pensions/Welfare Officers and Advocates who are authorised by VVAA State and Sub-Branches to represent the VVAA are insured by VITA and bound by the ethical and behavioural standards imposed by the Training and Information Program.
