6.2 Insurance

The Fund has insured for risks through the Government’s insurable risk managed fund, called ‘Comcover’. Worker’s compensation is insured through Comcare.

6.3 Losses from Loan Re-measurement

In accordance with AASB 9 Financial Instruments, the decision to provide a loan at no interest rate represents income foregone by the lender. The income foregone (or financial loss) should be recognised at the time of the decision to make the loan rather than over the life of the loan. Therefore, the accounting standard requires that the loss be recognised at the time that the loan is made. After initial recognition, the loan should be treated consistent with a commercial loan (as represented by the recognition of interest revenue over the remaining life of the loan).

In accounting terms, AASB 9 requires that:

  1. financial assets issued at less than a market interest rate are required to be discounted to their fair value, with the difference between the issue price and the fair value (i.e. the financial loss for interest foregone) being recognised as a loss in the statement of comprehensive income and as a reduction in the value of the loan receivable; and
  2. over the life of the loan, a notional interest income is recognised as interest revenue in the statement of comprehensive income and an increase in the loan receivable.

6.4 Investment of surplus money

Subparagraphs 59(1) (a) and (b) of the PGPA Act allows corporate Commonwealth entities to invest money that is not immediately required for the purposes of the entity.

The Fund’s surplus moneys are on deposit with the Australian Military Bank and Defence Bank.

6.5 Economic dependency

The Fund receives economic support from Department of Defence by way of provision of administrative support, computer, communication facilities and office accommodation for the Fund’s Principal Office staff. The Trustees consider, however, that in the event that the support provided by the Department of Defence was fully or partly withdrawn, the Fund is in a position that it could continue to provide benefits, although likely at a reduced level, to eligible persons.

6.6 Segment reporting

The Fund operates across Australia and exists to provide support to members of the ADF who have served in, or in association with, the RAN and to the dependants of such members.
