The Pension Supplement is stopping for people who live overseas or travel outside Australia for more than 6 weeks.
You will still get the Pension Supplement if you travel overseas for less than 6 weeks.
From 1 January 2018, this payment:
- will stop once you have been outside of Australia for more than 6 weeks
- will stop on departure, if you leave Australia to live in another country
If you live overseas and get Pension Supplement, you will get a letter explaining how the change will affect you.
