Preparing for stormy skies (part 1): the RAAF's future fighter force | The Strategist
Australia’s deteriorating security outlook, and what it means for our strategic relationships and our defence planning, has been a hot topic of late. Two key articles, by Paul Dibb and Peter Jennings, highlight the growing strategic threats in our region, particularly if US security commitments begin to look shaky in coming years.

Cost of Living Service
Minister and the Premier announced that a new Cost of Living Service being delivered by Service NSW, is now available at 10 Service NSW Centres across the state, including Wetherill Park, Wynyard and Parramatta.
The program will be rolled out across NSW by later this year. A copy of the media release is attached. There is a link at the bottom with further details.
The NSW Government offers more than 40 rebates and refunds across 12 agencies which could save people hundreds of dollars a year. Pensioner concession card holders could be eligible for savings of almost $1100 if they are eligible for the Low Income Household Energy Rebate, CTP refund, Appliance Replacement Offer, Pensioner Water Rebate and free rego.
A family with two children could save more than $800 with potential savings on the FuelCheck app, Free Rego, Active Kids vouchers, the Family Energy Rebate and more.
The new service is a one-stop shop that allows people to make an appointment to meet a cost of living specialist at a Service NSW centre, where they can find out what refunds and rebates they may be eligible for. Once these are identified, the specialist will help them to make the claims.
Appointments can be made online, over the phone or by visiting a Service NSW centre. Anyone can make an appointment, it isnt means tested and its free. You dont need to live in one of the 10 areas to arrange an appointment.

IMPORTANT DFRDB UPDATE
Attached is an update that relates to the latest on the DFRDB fight.
It has some important info and the address of a web site you can look at to keep up to date. It will be of great benefit to the cause if you forward this to all your ex Service contacts of the DFRDB era.
Also very important, contact CSC and ask for all your pension details since your retirement from the service. You will probably get a bit of a shock when you see in black and white how badly we have been treated pension wise.
Please ensure you register and get your details from CSC and this will give us the data base we need.
