BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Welcome to WA Medically Retired Police Redress scheme online application service, powered by SmartyGrants.

Before you start to fill out the application form, it’s a good idea to read through it to see whether you are eligible and if you are, what you might need. 

It's possible you’ll want to upload some documents (medical reports, letters about your Section 8 retirement and so on) so scan these and have them ready to go, however there is a box to tick to provide us with consent to look at your WAPOL, RiskCover and any other government records.  When you provide us with that consent, we should be able to find enough information to support your application. 

We understand that thinking about your police career can trigger unpleasant thoughts and symptoms.  Because of this we have made the application process as simple and hands-off as we could.  If you do feel uncomfortable or distressed, please talk to someone you trust.  We will contact you only if it's absolutely necessary.

For your privacy and security, the system is built to time out after about half an hour, so it’s a good idea to click save regularly so you don’t have to begin again.    

The application period closes at 12 noon on Monday 8 April 2019.  If you have any questions about the form, the WA Medically Retired Police Redress scheme, the website or the process, please call us during business hours on 08 6229 5868 or email info@wamrpoliceredress.wa.gov.au

If you need more help using this form, download the Help Guide for Applicants see the Applicant Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), but these are not specific to WA Medically Retired Police Redress.

You can also click next page or previous page on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the application.

SAVING YOUR INCOMPLETE APPLICATION

You do not have to submit this application in one go.  You can come back to it as many times as you like, so long as you submit it by 12 noon, Monday 8 April 2019. 

If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press save and log out. When you log back in and click on the My Submissions link at the top of the screen, you will find your application.  Click on it to reopen it and keep going from where you left off.

You can also download any application, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the Download button located at the bottom of the last page of the application form.

SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION

You will find a Review and Submit button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel.

Once you have reviewed your application and you’re happy with it, click Submit at the top of the screen or on the navigation panel. You won’t be able to submit your application until you’ve filled in all the asterisked fields.

Once you have submitted your application, you won’t be able to change what you’ve written or upload any more supporting material.  If you have forgotten something, please call or email us to discuss this: 08 6229 5868 or info@wamrpoliceredress.wa.gov.au

When you submit your application, this system sends you an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted application attached.  We suggest you save this. 

If you do not receive a confirmation email this means, for whatever reason, your application has not been submitted.  You should go back to the application form, check you haven’t missed any answer box that has an asterisk, check all your documents have been uploaded and check that you have clicked submit.

ATTACHMENTS AND SUPPORT DOCUMENTS

You might want o upload some supporting documentation to your application. This is very simple, but you will need to have them scanned and saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 10Mb each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5Mb – the larger the file, the longer it will take to load.
