Missing Seniors Supplement

Leia has noticed that her Seniors Supplement quarterly payment hasn’t reached her bank account in September and doesn’t understand why.

Q. Leia

I’m waiting on my quarterly Seniors Supplement hitting my bank account, but now that it’s well into October, I’m concerned something has happened to it. Is there a reason it hasn’t been paid?

A. The Seniors Supplement is no longer paid to holders of the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, with the last payment being made June 2015. This is due to a change in legislation announced in 2014, but which took some time for the Government to pass.
