Centrelink Aged Pension Changes from January 1 2015
The rules will change from 1 January so that any super fund pensions that start from 1 January or change after date, will no longer be exempt from the income test for working out if you qualify for a Centrelink Pension.
This change will also affect your qualification for the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card.
Who does it affect?
If you are turning 65 before 1 January 2015 and have a superfund pension, now is the time to review your super fund pension before it is too late.
We can show you an example that a simple restructure of a client’s super fund saved the client over $40,000.
