October 24, 2023

Member for Wide Bay Llew O’Brien has released his updated 2023 Age Pension Guide, including payment rates, assets tests and conditions.

“Payment rates, rules, and other details for the Age Pension are updated twice a year, and some rules are quite complex so the Age Pension Guide is produced to ensure Wide Bay pensioners have access to up-to-date information that is clear and easy to understand,” Mr O’Brien said.

“The October 2023 Age Pension Guide contains information about the guidelines, payments and eligibility tests relating to the Age Pension, as well as commonly asked questions and useful contact telephone numbers.”

Mr O’Brien said a range of factors could affect Age Pension payments, including the income and asset tests, deeming rates and other provisions.

“These asset tests and other provisions are adjusted from time to time and can change the amount of assistance that pensioners are entitled to receive, so it is important that people have access to the latest information about the support that is available,” he said.

“The guide also provides helpful information about the Pension Bonus and Work Bonus Schemes, the Carer Payment and Allowance, and health and concession cards that are available to pensioners.”

The guide can be ordered by telephoning (07) 4121-2936, or downloaded through the Helpful Guides section of Mr O’Brien’s website
