To qualify for Age Pension, you must satisfy Centerlink’s age and residence requirements. Centrelink then works out how much Age Pension is payable. This depends on your income and assets and other circumstances.
To find out about the Age Pension and other Government benefits, Centrelink’s Financial Information Service offers free, independent information. Even if you don’t expect to claim a pension or benefit it may pay to enquire. Visit Centrelink’s website for more information.
