ADF members must maintain a high standard of fitness. Many servicemen and women have to retire from the ADF as invalids even though they are not permanently disabled. Most are able to find new jobs as civilians. The aim of the MSBS is to give invalidity retirees a benefit which matches their ability to gain alternative civilian employment. The benefit received by a severely disabled retiree, for instance, will be different to the benefit received by a retiree with good re-employment prospects.
