RSA Support Services
Local RSAs provide support services designed to assist ex-servicemen and women in need, whether or not they are members of a Returned Services’ Association.
Each RSA appoints a Support Officer to co-ordinate these services and to give advice on the various community services available to ex-service personnel and their families.
How We help
RSA assistance ranges from monetary grants for those in financial difficulty, to help with practical tasks, visiting the sick, meals-on-wheels, and offering friendship and support in times of need.
Who We help
Help is available to all ex-servicemen and women, their spouses/partner, widows/widowers and dependants, whether or not they are members of an RSA.
Help and contact details for overseas veterans now resident in New Zealand.

The various war pensions and allowances are listed with contact details for the War Pensions Processing Unit.
How RSA can help
Assistance with making applications is available to members and non-members of RSA through the Pensions or Support Officers located at each local RSA.
