How to manage your allowance
Your options and obligations for Partner Allowance.
These can include telling us:
- if your circumstances change
- you’re going overseas
- there’s a change to your income.
We need to know about changes that could reduce or stop your Partner Allowance.
To get your payment while outside Australia you must continue to meet the qualification rules for Partner Allowance.
How much you or your partner earn affects your payment. We need to know what you and your partner earn so we pay you the right amount.
If you’re getting Partner Allowance and reach Age Pension age, you can transfer to Age Pension.
If you’re Age Pension age and get an eligible payment, you can apply to transfer to Age Pension.
You can get help to manage your money if your bank account is overdrawn.
