Working part-time

The pension income test will be changed. The rate at which the pension is withdrawn for each dollar of additional private income goes from 40c to 50c for income in excess of the free area (currently $138 per fortnight for singles, $240 per fortnight for couples). This means that singles can earn just $38693 before becoming ineligible and couples who could previously earn $74423 will now lose their pension if earnings exceed $59228. Read more here.
