Nothing new for pensioners

Font Size:

It seems that those struggling to survive on an Age Pension will have to do so for a little longer. As expected, there are no additional payments or increases available for Age Pension recipients. However, much fanfare has been made of the Clean Energy Household Assistance package which will be paid from this month. An increase of $388 per annum will be paid to those on an Age Pension, Disability Support pension recipients and self-funded retirees who hold a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card. But let’s not forget that this is being introduced to cover the increased household costs resulting from the implementation of a price on carbon pollution. Find out more about Clean Energy Household Assistance.
