Military Pensions are approved in terms of the Military Pensions Act (Act 84 of 1976) and provide funds for soldiers injured in combat. The Act also provides for members from former political organisations, referred to as Non-statutory Forces (NSF), who were injured or disabled, or who contracted diseases while performing official duties. Such members are entitled to pensions as well as medical treatment.

The GPAA engages with the Military Veterans Department on issues relating to Military Pensions and a Health Risk Manager is employed to ensure that disabilities are properly assessed.
