The Coalition has recommitted itself to the fair indexation of Defence Forces Retirement Benefit (DFRB) and Defence Force Retirement and Death Benefits (DFRDB) military superannuation pensions this week.
“I am determined that we keep faith with those who have served and protected Australia,” Mr Jones said.
“A future Coalition Government will ensure that DFRB and DFRDB superannuants aged 55 and over will have their superannuation pensions indexed in the same way as aged and service pensions.
“Across Australia 57,000 superannuants, and their families, will have access to fair, just and equitable indexation of their superannuation entitlements under a Coalition government.
“The plan is fully costed and fully funded.”
Mr Jones said Labor had led people to believe that they would provide a fairer deal for ex-servicemen and women.
Unfortunately, the Rudd-Gillard government has never delivered.
“I will keep my word,” Mr Jones said.
“Our veterans and their families deserve fair indexation. A Coalition Government will deliver it.”
