If an accident happens during your service

If you were injured in an accident during your service or became sick with an illness that was caused by your service, the Defence Forces or the place of your non-military service will take care of your treatment during your service.

After your service has ended, the State Treasury is responsible for the cost of the treatment for your injury or service-related illness as well as any other statutory compensations.

You are entitled to compensation from the State Treasury if your case meets the conditions laid down in the act on compensation for a military accident and service-related illness.

To receive the compensation, you must submit an application to the State Treasury. Follow this procedure:

1. Get the Notification of a Military Accident form from the compensation form page and fill in your details:
