Calculating your costs for a Home Care Package
We assess your income to work out how much you need to pay for a Home Care Package.
We add up all your earnings, including any:
- deemed income from financial assets
- money or assets you’ve gifted in the last 5 years.
If you’re in a couple, we count your partner’s income too. We:
- add what they earn to what you earn
- divide the total by 2 to get the amount we use as your income.
Read about what income gets assessed on the My Aged Care website.
