Making a claim

Members who are considering making a claim are encouraged to contact RBF to discuss their possible entitlements. RBF staff can explain the options available to you and ensure you understand the application.

Application forms are available from RBF, please contact the RBF Enquiry Line on 1800 622 631.


If you are considering making a claim it is important that you do not resign or retire from your employment within the Tasmanian Fire Service and you remain a member of the State Fire Commission Superannuation Scheme until the claim assessment process has been completed.
