The Age Pension age for social security purposes is 65 years for men. Women qualify at different ages depending on their date of birth and by 2014 the minimum qualifying age for women will also be 65 years. Beginning in 2017, the Age Pension age will be increased to 67 years at a rate of six months every two years. The Age Pension is assessed and paid by Centrelink.
