Pensioners and Seniors Information Kit - Terri Butler MP, Labor for Griffith

Pensioners and Seniors Information Kit

I have updated the Pensioners and Seniors Information Kit, reflecting the Turnbull Government’s cuts to the pension assets test of 1 January 2017. 

The Kit is tailored for pensioners and seniors, and contains all important information on pension rates, deeming rates and the income and assets tests.

The kit is available HERE, or you can get a copy from my electorate office.

    useful kit but needs updating for September 2019 pension rates. Note the assets test rate of $3 per 1000 has simply gone back to the rate it was PRIOR to the global crisis. The rate was halved to help pensioners temporarily and was voted for by both parties and both parties always knew this rate was way below what Labor or Liberals could maintain in the long term to help the most pensioners and those that need it most. The assets test is still very reasonable for all pensioners and some will argue still far too generous (ie the assets and income tests)…… Think of those that don’t own a home, and especially if they pay rent and /or have no assets and you quickly realise how generous the asstes test is being back to the reasonable rate of $3 per 1000 per fn reduction in pnesion …and that is only after very generous assets limits that don’t include the value of your home. That is still exempt so those that are whingeing should stop and consider how generoous the Australian Government is..We are by far still the lucky country no matter which party is in government.
