Figure 1 - Trends in total voted and actual expenses and capital expenditure Source: Ministry of Social Development The movements in departmental and non-departmental appropriations in Vote Veterans' Affairs - Social Development, which are detailed in the Summary of Financial Activity table above, are driven by movements in Non-Departmental Benefits and Other Unrequited Expenses. 130 SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING SECTOR - INFORMATION SUPPORTING THE ESTIMATES 2008/09 B.5A Vol.10

5 Non-Departmental Benefits and Other Unrequited Expenses Figure 2 - Trends in non-departmental benefits and other unrequited expenses Source: Ministry of Social Development Annual expenditure is forecast to increase to $ million in 2011/12 from $ million in 2003/04. Veteran s Pension Annual expenditure is forecast to increase to $ million in 2011/12 from $ million in 2003/04, a 97% increase over the nine-year period. Veteran s Pension recipients are forecast to increase to an average of 12,200 in 2011/12 from 8,200 in 2003/04. Both the number of recipients and the average payment rate have grown over the past five years, contributing to the rise in expenditure. Both trends are expected to continue through to 2011/12. Accumulated cost of living adjustments to the standard Veteran s Pension rates of payment account for about 43% of the change in expenditure and drives the average rate trend. The number of people transferring to Veteran s Pension from New Zealand Superannuation has been the dominant driver of growth in recipients. War Disablement Pensions Annual expenditure is forecast to increase to $ million in 2011/12 from $ million in 2003/04, a 54% increase over the nine-year period. The number of War Disablement Pensions recipients is forecast to fall to an average of 19,400 in 2011/12 from 22,000 in 2003/04. As the recipient population ages, the average level of disability is increasing, with an increasing number of recipients applying for recognition of multiple disabilities. The average payment rate rises with disability levels. Over the last five years this effect has more than offset the decrease in expenditure due to the falling number of recipients.

6 Medical Treatment Annual expenditure is forecast to increase to $ million in 2011/12 from $ million in 2003/04, a 64% increase over the nine-year period. Approximately 88% of this increase is due to increased expenditure on Medical Treatment (excluding Australia). This reflects the increasing trends in disablement levels and multiple disabilities described above for War Disablement Pensions. Interest Concessions Land and Buildings Annual expenditure is forecast to decrease to $17,000 in 2011/12 from $120,000 in 2003/04, an 86% decrease over the nine-year period. There are both fewer outstanding loans and lower amounts of outstanding capital per loan. 132 SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING SECTOR - INFORMATION SUPPORTING THE ESTIMATES 2008/09 B.5A Vol.10
