Phillip Island RSL Welfare Services
The Phillip Island RSL takes pride in providing Welfare support to the Veterans and families within the Community. The Welfare and Pensions Centre along with a dedicated team of volunteers are committed to achieve these outcomes.

The Phillip Island RSL Sub-Branch Committee is committed to ongoing support to provide a wide range of Service to aid veterans, widows and members.

As we are in an ageing population, their quality of life has become an ever increasing concern, whatever the case may be, we aim to offer support, programs and guidance.

Phillip Island – $5

Pensions
John Methven is the Welfare and Pensions Co ordinator (volunteer) who can assist with welfare and pensions enquiries. DVA also makes regular trips to the RSL for pension appointments.
