A contribution is the amount a member must pay toward the cost of their Service residence or rent band choice home. It is paid through the member's pay account.
Examples: Stairwell cleaning, high-rise window cleaning.
7.6.41 Contribution for Service residence or rent band choice home
Example: A member's contribution is reduced by CDF by one rank group because the garage of their apartment complex is flooded and cannot be used for two months.
Non-example: The member's yard floods because they have failed to replace a leaky tap washer. The CDF does not grant a reduction in contribution, as the member's neglect caused the loss.

For table item 4, the list of deployments approved by the Minister is available in Annex 17.1.A.

7.6.48 Member promoted or commissioned
Example: A Flight Sergeant commissions as a Flying Officer and their rank group eligibility would normally change from rent band 2 (or B2) to rent band 1 (or B1). Instead, the member keeps their eligibility for a rent band 2 Service residence and stays in their home, making the same contribution.
