About this event
Across five deployments, Wayne Bemet and his wife Bridget used the extra tax-free income that comes with deployment to buy a car, get married, fund a house deposit, pay down debt and boost savings.
“I grew up in modest circumstances, in housing commission on the Central Coast,” 47-year-old Bemet says. “Mum and Dad did their best but went without a lot. As a result, I always wanted to have my own house. That was a burning desire.”
The goal made deployment easier. And it paid off – Wayne now says he and Bridget are financially independent.
Wayne’s story is not unusual – it’s an ideal but is not always achievable.
Recent RSL NSW veteran research found that one in five veterans under 50 say they are using or will need financial assistance.
