RSA Social Services

Local RSA’s provide support services that are designed to assist ex-servicemen and women in need, whether or not they are members of an RSA. 

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, 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.


Overseas Veterans
Help and contact details for overseas veterans now resident in New Zealand.

War Pensions and Allowances
War veterans and ex-servicemen and women may be entitled to a war pension and a range of allowances from the New Zealand Government.

The various war pensions and allowances are listed with contact details 
for the War Pensions Processing Unit.

non-members of RSA through the Support Officers located at the Matamata RSA
