No. R19 of 2014 Exemptions as made
This determination exempts a payment from the definition of "ordinary income" in the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 which means the payment is not assessed as income under the means test for an income-support payment. The payment covered by the instrument is known as the "Thalidomide Class Action Payment" which is a one-off lump sum payment made pursuant to the settlement of a class action by persons in Australia and New Zealand who suffered thalidomide-caused injuries that was approved by the Victorian Supreme Court on 7 February 2014.
