An income support payment we used to offer for women whose partner gets Age Pension or Disability Support Pension.
No new Wife Pensions
We stopped granting this payment from 1 July 1995.
Who’s still eligible
If you got Wife Pension before 1 July 1995, you can stay on it for:
- as long as you’re still eligible, or
- until you transfer to Age Pension.
We use income and assets tests to work out how much Wife Pension you get.
