Class action to claim back lost Age Pension entitlements
An age pensioner has been successful in claiming back substantial pension reductions after Centrelink incorrectly assessed an inheritance received by them, Meridian Lawyers has revealed.
A law firm spokesperson says: “Centrelink is likely to have done this to many other pensioners over the past 15 years.
"If your pension has been reduced as a result of receiving a benefit under a will or testamentary estate, Meridian Lawyers invites you to contact us."
The law firm says it is planning a class action with the intention of recovering similar incorrect pension reductions.
