Why your payment doesn't count as income

The continence aids payment you get from us doesn't count as income.

CAPS doesn’t count as income:

  • when you do your tax return
  • in income tests for help with residential aged care costs
  • in income tests for Centrelink payments

This means:

  • you can get CAPS on top of your main income without paying more tax
  • the CAPS money you get doesn’t stop you getting other benefits
