               (a) a person was receiving a service pension immediately before
                   1 October 1995; and
               (b) the person was a member of a couple immediately before
                   1 October 1995; and
               (c) the person’s partner was not, immediately before 1 October
                   1995, receiving a social security pension, a service pension
                   or an income support supplement; and
               (d) the amount that was the person’s maximum basic rate in
                   respect of the service pension for the last payment period
                   before 1 October 1995 exceeds the amount of the person’s
                   maximum basic rate on 1 October 1995; and
               (e) the amount of that excess exceeds, in relation to a particular
                   period, the sum of:
                     (i) the increased amounts (if any) for the original
                         components of the rate of service pension payable to the

                   (iii) the increased amounts (if any) for those new
                         components; and

             in calculating the amount of service pension payable to the person
             in respect of the payment period, an amount equal to the difference

             increased amount, in relation to an original component or a new
             component, means the amount (if any) by which the amount of the
             component exceeds the lowest amount of the component payable
             in any payment period ending after 1 October 1995.
             original component means:
               (a) a person’s maximum basic rate that was used in calculating
                   the person’s rate of service pension for the last payment
                   period before 1 October 1995; or
              (b) an additional amount that was added to the person’s
                   maximum basic rate in calculating the person’s rate of
                   service pension for that payment period.
             new component means:
              (a) any additional amount that, in calculating a person’s rate of
                  service pension, is added to the person’s maximum basic
                  rate, being an additional amount that would not have been so
                  added in respect of the last payment period before 1 October
                  1995; or
              (b) any amount by which a person’s rate of service pension has

                  circumstances on or after 1 October 1995.
             payment period means the period in respect of which a payment of

               (e) either of the following subparagraphs applies to the person:
                      (i) if the person became entitled to the pension before the

                     (ii) if the person becomes entitled to the pension after that
                          commencement—that subsection would have applied to

       (3) Despite subclause (1) or (2), the rate of rent assistance or
           residential care allowance payable to a person to whom that
           subclause applies (whether that rate is required to be worked out
           under this Act (other than this Schedule) or is required to be
           worked out under subclause (4) of clause 4) is reduced by the sum
           of any indexation or adjustment increases occurring after the
           commencement of this clause to the person’s pension rate.
       (4) If, because of subclause (3), the rate of rent assistance or
           residential care allowance payable to a person to whom
           subclause (1) or (2) applies is reduced to nil, subclause (1) or (2),
           as the case may be, ceases to apply to the person.
       (5) If subclause (1) or (2) ceases to apply to a person, that subclause
           does not apply to the person again.
       (6) In this clause:
           indexation or adjustment increase means an increase resulting
           from the operation of Division 18 of Part IIIB.

                  (ii) the person’s pension included an amount by way of rent
                       assistance; and
            (b) immediately before the commencement of this clause,
                 section 111 of the Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment
                 Act (No. 2) 1992 applied to the person; and
            (c) this subclause continues to apply to the person.
       (2) If:
             (a) a decision was made on or after 20 March 1993 under this

                 a period; and
             (b) the period started before 20 March 1993; and
             (c) the period continued until at least 19 March 1993;
           the person is taken, for the purposes of this clause, to have been
           receiving rent assistance under this Act immediately before
           20 March 1993.

Clause 5

         (3) This clause applies to a person if:
              (a) immediately before 20 March 1993, the person was receiving
                   rent assistance under the Social Security Act; and
              (b) on or after that date, the person became or becomes entitled
                   to be paid a pension; and
              (c) either of the following subparagraphs applies to the person:
                     (i) if the person became entitled to be paid the pension
                         before the commencement of this clause—section 111
                         of the Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment Act
                         (No. 2) 1992 applied to the person immediately before
                         that commencement;
                    (ii) if the person becomes entitled to be paid the pension
                         after that commencement—that section would have
                         applied to the person immediately before he or she
                         became so entitled if it had not been repealed; and
              (d) this subclause continues to apply to the person.
         (4) Subject to subclauses (7), (8), (9), (10) and (11), if subclause (1) or
             (3) applies to a person, the amount by way of rent assistance to be
             used to calculate the person’s pension rate is the amount (the floor
             amount) by way of rent assistance that would be included in the
             person’s pension rate if:
               (a) the person’s pension rate were neither income reduced nor
                   assets reduced; and
               (b) the amount of rent assistance were calculated under this Act
                   as in force immediately before 20 March 1993.
         (5) Subclause (1) or (3) ceases to apply to a person if:
              (a) the person no longer receives a service pension, an income
                  support supplement, or a social security pension under the
                  Social Security Act; or
              (b) the person ceases to be eligible for rent assistance; or
              (c) the pension rate that is applicable to the person because of
                  that subclause is equal to or less than the rate that would be
                  the person’s pension rate if that subclause did not apply to
                  the person; or
              (d) the Commission considers that there is a significant change
                  in the person’s circumstances that would affect the amount of
                  rent assistance that is payable to the person apart from this
                  clause.

                   pension or supplement that was payable on a pension
                   pay-day that occurred before that date would have included a

       (2) If the amount of an instalment of a service pension or income
           support supplement that was payable on a pension pay-day before
           1 January 1998 would, had the amendments made by Schedule 1 to
           the Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Budget and
           Simplification Measures) Act 1997 not been made, be taken to have
           been increased so as to include a child-related amount, the
           instalment is taken to have been so increased.
       (3) In this clause:
           child-related amount, at any relevant time, means an amount that
           was required at that time to be included in a service pension under

           by Module DAA) of the Service Pension Rate Calculator at the end
           of section 42, or in an income support supplement under Module F
           or Module G (as Module F or Module G was affected by Module
           H) of the Income Support Supplement Rate Calculator at the end of
           section 45Y, of the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 as in force at
           that time.

10 Saving provisions applicable to the amendments relating to
          amounts in respect of children
       (1) This clause applies to a person if:
            (a) immediately before 1 January 1998 a service pension or
                 income support supplement was payable to the person at a
                 rate that included one or more pension/supplement
                 child-related amounts in respect of a child or children; and
            (b) the Commission determines on or before 31 March 1998, or
                 after that date as a result of an application made by the
                 person to the Commission on or before that date, that, on
                 1 January 1998, the person’s notional pension/supplement
                 child-related amount was or will be greater than the notional
                 family allowance child-related amount in relation to the
                 person or the person’s partner.
       (2) The rate of service pension or income support supplement payable
           to the person from time to time includes the person’s notional
           pension/supplement child-related amount at that time until, in
           accordance with subclause (2A), it is no longer to be so included.

Part 1 General


Clause 10

       (2A) For the purposes of subclause (2), the rate of service pension or
            income support supplement payable to the person is no longer to
            include the person’s notional pension/supplement child-related
            amount:
              (a) in respect of any payment made at any time before 1 July
                  2000—if the person’s notional pension/supplement
                  child-related amount ceases to be greater than the notional
                  family allowance child-related amount in relation to the
                  person or the person’s partner at that time; and
              (b) in respect of any payment made at any time on or after 1 July
                  2000—if the person has elected, by written notice given to
                  the Secretary, no longer to be covered by this clause.
       (2B) For the purposes of Part IIIC, the rate of invalidity service pension,
            partner service pension, or income support supplement, that is
            payable to a person who has not reached pension age does not
            include the notional pension/supplement child-related amount.
         (3) If:
               (a) at any time before 1 July 2000, the person’s notional
                   pension/supplement child-related amount ceases to be greater
                   than the notional family allowance child-related amount in
                   relation to the person or person’s partner; and
               (b) because of this fact, the rate of service pension or income
                   support supplement payable to a person is no longer to
                   include the first-mentioned amount;
             the rate of that pension or supplement is never thereafter to include
             the person’s notional pension/supplement child-related amount
             even though that amount may again become greater than the
             notional family allowance child-related amount in relation to the
             person or the person’s partner.
       (3A) Subclause (2) ceases to apply to the rate of service pension or
            income support supplement payable to a person:
              (a) from the start of the day the Social Security Legislation
                  Amendment (Youth Allowance) Act 1998 commences, if the
                  child or youngest child because of whom this clause applies
                  to the person is 16 or over then; or
              (b) from the start of the 16th birthday of the child or youngest
                  child because of whom this clause applies to the person, if
                  that child is under 16 on the day that Act commences.

     the amount by which the rate of family allowance that would be
     payable to the person or the person’s partner at that time under the
     Social Security Act except for point 1069-B8 of that Act, would be
     more than the minimum family allowance rate.
     notional pension/supplement child-related amount, in relation to
     a person at any time, means:
       (a) if the time is a time occurring before 1 July 2000—the total
           of the pension supplement child-related amounts that would

           pension or income support supplement payable to the person
           in respect of any child or children referred to in

       (b) if the time is a time occurring on or after 1 July 2000—an
           amount that has been determined by the Commission, by
           instrument in writing, to be the amount of the
           pension/supplement child-related amount at that time, having
           regard to the indexation of the Part A rate of family tax
           benefit to that time under the A New Tax System (Family
           Assistance) Act 1999.
     pension/supplement child-related amount, at any relevant time,
     means an amount that was or would be required at that time to be
     included in a service pension under Module C or Module D (as
     Module C or Module D was affected by Module DAA) of the

11 Saving provisions applicable to certain people who cease to be
          service pensioners on 1 January 1998
         (1) Subject to subclause (2), this clause applies to a person at a
             particular time (the relevant time) if:

              (b) a service pension was payable to the person immediately

                   Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (Budget and
                   Simplification Measures) Act 1997 had not been made.
         (2) This clause ceases to apply to a person, and does not afterwards
             again apply to the person, if:
               (a) the service pension referred to in paragraph (1)(c) would
                   have ceased to be payable to the person; or
              (b) family payment under the Social Security Act is no longer
                   payable to the person or the person’s partner or is no longer
                   payable to the person or the person’s partner at a rate higher
                   than the minimum family payment rate; or
               (c) service pension becomes payable to the person.

          Entitlements Act 1986 as in force immediately before 1 January
          1998.

11A Amendments relating to treatment of income streams
      (1) If:
            (a) a person who had entered into a binding arrangement for the
                provision to the person of an income stream was, on
                19 September 1998, receiving a service pension, an income
                support supplement or a social security payment; and
            (b) the Minister declares, in writing, that the Minister is satisfied
                that the application of this Act (as amended by the amending
                Act) would cause the person significant disadvantage in
                relation to the treatment of the person’s income stream;
          this Act applies to the person in relation to the income stream as if
          the amendments made by Part 2 of Schedule 3 to the amending Act
          had not been made.
      (2) Subclause (1) ceases to have effect if:
           (a) the service pension, income support supplement or social
               security payment referred to in subclause (1)(a) (the original
               payment) ceases to be payable to the person; and
           (b) another service pension, income support supplement or social
               security payment does not become payable to the person
               immediately after the original payment ceases to be payable.
      (3) If a person was receiving a service pension, an income support
          supplement or a social security payment on 19 September 1998,
          the person’s annual rate of ordinary income from:
            (a) an asset-test exempt income stream; or
            (b) an asset-tested income stream (long term);
          that is a defined benefit income stream whose commencement day
          is earlier than 20 September 1998 is to be worked out as if the
          amendment made by item 81 of Schedule 3 to the amending Act
          had not been made.
      (4) In this clause:
          amending Act means the Social Security and Veterans’ Affairs
          Legislation Amendment (Budget and Other Measures) Act 1998.

Part 1 General


Clause 11B

             binding arrangement, in relation to a person, means:
               (a) an arrangement that does not allow the person to commute an
                   income stream; or
               (b) an arrangement that may only be terminated on terms that
                   are, in the opinion of the Commission, likely to cause severe
                   detriment to the person.

11B Transitional definition of deductible amount (commencing
         1 July 2007)
         (1) This clause applies if:
              (a) a person has received at least one payment from a defined
                   benefit income stream before 1 July 2007, and is still
                   receiving payments from the income stream; and
              (b) the person receives income support payment in respect of a
                   continuous period starting before, and ending on or after, the
                   person’s trigger day (see subclause (5)); and
              (c) the amount of the income support payment received before
                   the person’s trigger day was affected by the deduction of a
                   deductible amount (within the meaning of this Act or the
                   Social Security Act, as the case requires, apart from this
                   clause) from the amount of the payments payable to the
                   person for a year under the income stream; and
              (d) if the person’s trigger day is after 1 July 2007—the income
                   stream has not been partially commuted on or after 1 July
                   2007 and before the person’s trigger day.
             Note 1:   If the income stream is wholly commuted, this clause will stop
                       applying because the person will no longer be receiving payments
                       from the income stream (see paragraphs (1)(a) and (d)).
             Note 2:   For the deduction of a deductible amount from amounts payable under
                       certain defined benefit income streams, see sections 46V and 46Y of
                       this Act and sections 1099A and 1099D of the Social Security Act.

         (2) Despite the amendment of this Act by Part 2 of Schedule 9 to the
             Tax Laws Amendment (Simplified Superannuation) Act 2007, for
             the purposes of working out the amount of any service pension or
             income support supplement received by the person on or after the
             trigger day in respect of the remaining part of the period mentioned
             in paragraph (1)(b), the deductible amount, in relation to the
             income stream for a year, is the greater of the following amounts:
               (a) the deductible amount mentioned in paragraph (1)(c);

                                Savings and transitional provisions Schedule 5
                                                                General Part 1


                                                                     Clause 11B

      (b) the sum of the amounts that are the tax free components
          (worked out under subsections 307-125(4) to (7) of the
          Income Tax (Transitional Provisions) Act 1997) of the
          payments received from the income stream during the year.
    Note:      Service pension and income support supplement are income support
               payments within the meaning of the Social Security Act (see
               subsection 23(1) of that Act).

(3) However, this clause stops applying to an income stream
    immediately after the time (if any) that the deductible amount in
    relation to the income stream is, under subclause (2), the amount
    mentioned in paragraph (2)(b).
(4) For the purposes of this clause, without limiting paragraph (1)(b),
    if the form of a person’s income support payment mentioned in
    paragraph (1)(b) changes during a period, the continuity of the
    period is not broken by the change.
    Example: The form of a person’s income support payment may change from one
             kind of payment (for instance, a social security pension under the
             Social Security Act) to another (for instance, a service pension under
             this Act).

(5) In this clause:
    income support payment has the same meaning as in the Social
    Security Act.
    trigger day, for a person, means:
      (a) if the person is under 60 years at the end of 30 June 2007—
          the day the person turns 60; or
      (b) if the person is 60 years or over at the end of 30 June 2007—
          1 July 2007.

                  end of 5 November 1997, the person became liable to pay an
                  accommodation bond for entry to a residential care service;
                  and
             (b) either an accommodation charge would have been payable
                  for the entry, or the person would have been a charge exempt
                  resident, had section 44-8B and Division 57A of the Aged
                  Care Act 1997 been in force at the time of the entry; and
             (c) the person later made an agreement (a refund agreement)
                  with the provider of the service that the person’s liability to
                  pay an accommodation bond for the entry was to be replaced
                  with a liability to pay an accommodation charge for the
                  entry, and that any payment of any of the bond was to be
                  refunded to the person.

            Note:     Accommodation bond, accommodation charge and charge exempt
                      resident have the same meanings as in the Aged Care Act 1997: see
                      subsection 5L(1) of this Act.

        (2) This Part also applies to a person if the Commission is satisfied
            that:
              (a) on or before 5 November 1997, the person sold his or her
                  principal home for the sole or principal purpose of raising
                  money to pay an accommodation bond for entry to a
                  residential care service; and
              (b) either an accommodation charge would have been payable
                  for the entry, or the person would have been a charge exempt
                  resident, had section 44-8B and Division 57A of the Aged
                  Care Act 1997 been in force at the time of the entry.
            Note:     Accommodation bond, accommodation charge and charge exempt
                      resident have the same meanings as in the Aged Care Act 1997: see
                      subsection 5L(1) of this Act.

        (3) This Part also applies to the partner of a person covered by
            subclause (1) or (2) (even if the person so covered is now
            deceased).
        (4) For the purposes of subclause (2), the time at which a person sells
            his or her home is the time when he or she comes under a legal
            obligation to transfer the home to the buyer.

14 Person’s ordinary income reduced using financial asset rules
        (1) For the purposes of this clause, assume that the person’s exempt
            bond amount (see clause 16) were a financial asset of the person.
        (2) The person’s ordinary income for a year is reduced by the amount
            of ordinary income taken to be received on the asset for the year, as
            worked out under Division 3 of Part IIIB of this Act (Deemed
            income from financial assets).
        (3) In working out that reduction, assume that the total value of the
            person’s financial assets exceeded the person’s deeming threshold
            (deeming threshold is a term used in that Division).




                                  Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986                     37
Schedule 5 Savings and transitional provisions
Part 2 Aged care accommodation bonds: certain transactions before 6 November 1997


Clause 15


15 Value of person’s assets reduced
              For the purposes of this Act (other than sections 52FA, 52G,
              52GA, 52H, 52JA, 52JB, 52JC and 52JD), the total value of the
              person’s assets is reduced by the person’s exempt bond amount
              (see clause 16).

16 Meaning of exempt bond amount
        (1) The following is how to work out a person’s exempt bond amount.
        (2) If the person is covered by subclause 13(1) (but not subclause
            13(2)), the person’s exempt bond amount is any amount of
            accommodation bond payment refunded to the person under the
            refund agreement mentioned in that subclause.
        (3) If the person is covered by subclause 13(2) (but not subclause
            13(1)), the person’s exempt bond amount is the gross proceeds of
            the sale mentioned in that subclause, less:
              (a) any costs incurred in the course of the sale; and
              (b) the amount of any debt the person or the person’s partner
                   owed immediately before the sale, so far as the debt was
                   secured by the home at that time.
        (4) If the person is covered by both subclauses 13(1) and (2), the
            person’s exempt bond amount is the greater of the 2 amounts
            worked out under subclauses (2) and (3) of this clause.
        (5) If the person is covered by subclause 13(3), the person’s exempt
            bond amount is equal to the exempt bond amount of the person’s
            partner, as worked out under subclause (2), (3) or (4) of this clause.
        (6) But in all of the above cases, if the person currently has a partner
            (who is not deceased), the person’s exempt bond amount is half of
            what it would otherwise be.

Part 2A—Charge exempt residents under the Aged
       Care Act 1997

17 Meaning of charge exempt resident
           In this Part:
           charge exempt resident has the same meaning as in the Aged Care
           Act 1997.

17A Persons who became charge exempt residents before
         commencement
       (1) This clause applies if a person first became a charge exempt
           resident before the commencement of this clause.
       (2) If, at any time after becoming a charge exempt resident but before
           the commencement of this clause, the person, or the person’s
           partner, was earning, deriving or receiving any rent from the
           person’s principal home from another person, any such rent earned,
           derived or received while the person is a charge exempt resident is
           not income in relation to the person, or the person’s partner, for the
           purposes of this Act.
           Note 1:    For rent, see subsection 5N(2).
           Note 2:    Under subsections 5LA(8) and (9), and subclause (3) of this clause,
                      the principal home of a person in a care situation may be a place other
                      than the place where the person receives care.

       (3) A residence of a person is taken to be the person’s principal home
           for the purposes of this Act during:
             (a) if:
                   (i) the Commission is satisfied that the residence was
                       previously the person’s principal home but that the
                       person left it for the purpose of going into a care
                       situation or becoming an aged care resident; and

Clause 17B

                   (ii) at any time after leaving the residence but before the
                        commencement of this clause, the person, or the
                        person’s partner, earned, derived or received rent for the
                        residence from another person;
                  any period during which:
                  (iii) the person is a charge exempt resident; and
                  (iv) the person, or the person’s partner, is earning, deriving
                        or receiving rent for the residence from another person;
                        and
              (b) any period during which the residence is, because of
                  paragraph (a), the principal home of the person’s partner.
             Note 1:   For rent see subsection 5N(2). For in a care situation see subsection
                       5NC(2). For aged care resident see subsection 5NC(5).
             Note 2:   This subclause is not meant to imply that a person may have more
                       than one principal home at the same time.


17B Refunds of accommodation charge
        (1) Clauses 17C and 17D apply to an amount (the refunded amount)
            that is refunded as mentioned in paragraph 56-1(kc) or 56-3(ic) of
            the Aged Care Act 1997 to a person because the person is or was a
            charge exempt resident.
        (2) Those clauses also apply to an amount (also called the refunded
            amount) that is paid to a person under paragraph 44-8A(6)(b) of
            that Act because the person is or was a charge exempt resident.
        (3) To avoid doubt, those clauses do not apply if the amount is paid to
            the person’s estate or to any other person.

17C Person’s ordinary income reduced using financial asset rules
        (1) For the purposes of this clause, assume that the refunded amount
            were a financial asset of the person.
        (2) The person’s ordinary income for a year is reduced by the amount
            of ordinary income taken to be received on the asset for the year, as
            worked out under Division 3 of Part IIIB of this Act (Deemed
            income from financial assets).
        (3) In working out that reduction, assume that the total value of the
            person’s financial assets exceeded the person’s deeming threshold
            (deeming threshold is a term used in that Division).

30 Transitional rates of service pension and income support
          supplement on and after 20 September 2009

           Application
       (1) This clause applies if:
            (a) on 19 September 2009 a person was receiving one of the
                 following payments:
                   (i) service pension or income support supplement;
                  (ii) age pension, disability support pension, wife pension,
                       carer payment, bereavement allowance, widow B
                       pension or special needs pension under the Social
                       Security Act; and
            (b) the person continues (without a break) to receive one of those
                 payments (whether or not of the same sort as the one the
                 person received on that day).

           Purpose
       (2) This clause has effect for the purposes of working out the rate of
           service pension or income support supplement under this Act for
           the person for a day (the relevant day) after 19 September 2009
           under subpoint SCH6-A1(2), (3), (4) or (6).
           Note:     This clause does not make a person entitled to receive service pension
                     or income support supplement if the person is not otherwise entitled to
                     receive it.

           Provisional payment rate for service pension
       (3) For working out the person’s rate of service pension, the person’s
           provisional payment rate is taken to be the amount worked out
           under subclause (4) if that amount is greater than the person’s
           provisional payment rate (for that purpose) apart from this clause.
           Note:     The provisional payment rate is an amount worked out under the
                     method statement in subpoint SCH6-A1(2). That subpoint may be
                     relevant of its own force or because of subpoint SCH6-A1(3) or (4).

34 Payment and income tax consequences of receiving service
         pension or income support supplement at rate affected by
         clause 30

             pension or income support supplement is payable to a person.

              Purpose
         (2) The purpose of this clause is to ensure that the person is treated
             appropriately in relation to the payment, and income taxation, of
             the pension or supplement by modifying the operation of this Act
             (and thus affecting the related income tax law) in relation to the
             person and the pension or supplement.
              Note:     This clause does not modify the operation of subsection 5GA(3),
                        which provides for working out the person’s minimum pension
                        supplement amount.

                    by any indexation and any relevant reduction described in
                    paragraph 30(4)(a);
               (b) the amount described in subparagraph 30(6)(a)(i), as affected

             supplement Module of the Rate Calculator.
              Note 1:   One effect of subclause (3) is that whichever of the amounts described
                        in paragraphs (3)(a) and (b) is relevant is the person’s pension
                        supplement amount (as defined in subsection 5Q(1) of this Act).

    Note 2:   If that amount exceeds the person’s pension supplement basic amount
              (as affected by subclause (4)), another effect of subclause (3) is that
              the excess affects the tax-exempt pension supplement under
              subsection 5GA(5) of this Act in some cases.
    Note 3:   Yet another effect of subclause (3) is that clause 4 of Schedule 6 will
              affect the operation of reductions of the maximum payment rate
              because of the income test and assets test in some cases.

    Pension supplement basic amount
(4) This Act applies in relation to the person’s service pension or
    income support supplement as if:
      (a) each reference in the table in subsection 5GA(4) to $509.60
          were a reference to $14,903.20; and
      (b) the reference in the table in subsection 5GA(4) to $426.40

Part 1—Preliminary

1 Steps in rate calculation
         (1) The following are the usual steps in the rate calculation process:
              (a) start with a maximum basic rate;
              (b) add any additional amounts that are subject to income or
                  assets testing;
              (c) apply the income and assets tests;
              (d) add any additional amounts that are not subject to income or
                  assets testing.
             Note 1:   The additional amounts referred to in paragraph (b) are amounts for
                       pension supplement and rent assistance.
             Note 2:   The only additional amount for the purposes of paragraph (d) at this
                       time is remote area allowance.

         (2) The overall rate calculation process is described in the relevant
             Method statement in Module A of the Rate calculator.

2 Standard categories of family situations

               (b) member of a couple or partnered;
               (c) member of an illness separated couple;
               (d) member of a respite care couple;

                                                                              Clause 3

       (2) If it is necessary to distinguish between the members of
           sub-categories of these standard categories, further words of
           description are added to the standard category label.

3 Explanation of Rate Calculator
       (1) The Rate Calculator is divided into Modules (for example,
           Module A).
       (2) A Module of the Rate Calculator is divided into points.
       (3) The points in a Module are identified by:
            (a) the letters and number SCH6 (followed by a dash), which
                indicate that the Module is in the Rate Calculator in this
                Schedule; and
            (b) a letter that is the letter allocated to the Module in which the
                point occurs; and
            (c) a number that identifies the order of the point within the
                Module.
           Example: Point SCH6-E2 is the 2nd point in Module E of the Rate Calculator in
                    this Schedule.

       (4) A point in a Module may be divided into subpoints.

4 Application for income tax purposes of reductions in respect of
          service pension or income support supplement

       (1) If a person’s rate of service pension is affected by a reduction
           under any or all of the following:
             (a) Module E (ordinary/adjusted income test) of the Rate
                 Calculator;

             subclause (1) applies in relation to the person and the pension as if:
               (c) paragraphs (1)(a) and (b) were omitted; and
               (d) the person had a pension supplement amount equal to what
                   would be the person’s pension supplement amount if the

             Item    Component of the rate
             1       all of the rate apart from any increase under Module C (rent
                     assistance) of the Rate Calculator and the person’s minimum
                     pension supplement amount
             2       the amount of any increase under Module C
             3       the person’s minimum pension supplement amount

           Quarterly pension supplement
       (4) If:
             (a) the rate (the main rate) of a person’s service pension or
                 income support supplement is to be reduced as described in
                 subclause (1) (applying of its own force or as affected by
                 subclause (2)) or subclause (3); and
             (b) an election by the person under subsection 60A(1) is in force;
           the person’s quarterly pension supplement is reduced to the same
           extent (if any) that the component of the main rate that would
           correspond to the person’s minimum pension supplement amount
           would be reduced under subclause (1) or (3) were the election not
           in force.
           Note:      The reduction will be disregarded unless the person’s quarterly
                      pension supplement is reduced to nil (see subsection 60C(4)).


5 Commencing rates
       (1) The amounts and rates set out in the Rate Calculator at the time of
           commencement of this Schedule (the commencing time) are the
           same as the corresponding amounts and rates that applied under
           this Act as in force on 1 January 1997.
       (2) However, each amount or rate so set out that is subject to
           indexation or adjustment under Division 18 of Part IIIB is taken to
           be replaced immediately after the commencing time by the amount
           or rate that would have been in force at that time as a result of the
           application of that Division if this Schedule had commenced on
           1 January 1997.

Part 2—Rate Calculator
Module A—Overall rate calculation process
             Rate to be an annual rate
SCH6-A1(1) The rate of pension is an annual rate (fortnightly amounts are
             provided for information only).

             Method statement 1 (service pension, not blind, not war widow/war
             widower—pensioner)
         (2) The rate of service pension for a person who:
               (a) is not permanently blind; and
               (b) is not a war widow/war widower—pensioner;
             is worked out in accordance with Method statement 1.
             Note:     For war widow/war widower—pensioner see subsection 5Q(1).


             Method statement 1

             Step 1.   Work out the person’s maximum basic rate using
                       MODULE B below.

             Step 1A. Work out the amount of pension supplement using
                      Module BA below.

             Step 2.   Work out the amount per year (if any) by way of rent
                       assistance using MODULE C below.

             Step 4.   Add up the amounts obtained in Steps 1, 1A and 2: the
                       result is called the maximum payment rate.

             Step 5.   Apply the ordinary/adjusted income test using MODULE
                       E below to work out the reduction for ordinary/adjusted
                       income.

                                         Overall rate calculation process Module A




         Step 6.   Take the reduction for ordinary/adjusted income away
                   from the maximum payment rate: the result is called the
                   income reduced rate.

         Step 7.   Apply the assets test using MODULE F below to work
                   out the reduction for assets.

         Step 8.   Take the reduction for assets away from the maximum
                   payment rate: the result is called the assets reduced rate.

         Step 9.   Compare the income reduced rate and the assets reduced
                   rate: the lower of the 2 rates, or the income reduced rate
                   if the rates are equal, is the provisional payment rate.

         Step 10. Work out the amount per year (if any) payable by way of
                  remote area allowance using MODULE G below.

         Step 11. Add any amount obtained in Step 10 to the person’s
                  provisional payment rate (see Step 9). The result is the
                  person’s rate of service pension.
                   Note 1:      For ordinary/adjusted income see point SCH6-E1.
                   Note 2:      If a person’s assets reduced rate is less than the person’s
                                ordinary/adjusted income reduced rate, the person may
                                be able to take advantage of provisions dealing with
                                financial hardship (sections 52Y and 52Z).
                   Note 3:      If a person’s rate is, or is to be, an income reduced rate
                                or an assets reduced rate, and at least one of those
                                reduced rates is not a nil rate, the person may be able to
                                take advantage of provisions dealing with the pension
                                loans scheme (sections 52ZAAA to 52ZM).
                   Note 4:      If a person’s rate is reduced under step 9, the order in
                                which the reduction is to be made against the
                                components of the maximum payment rate is laid down
                                by clause 4 of Part 1.
                   Note 4A:     Clause 30 of Schedule 5 may affect the provisional
                                payment rate in step 9.
                   Note 5:      The rate calculation for a member of a couple is affected
                                by the operation of point SCH6-A2.
                   Note 6.      The amount of a fortnightly instalment of service
                                pension will be rounded to the nearest cent (see
                                subsection 58A(5)).

             Note:     For war widow/war widower—pensioner see subsection 5Q(1).


             Method statement 2

             Step 1.   Work out what would be the person’s rate of service
                       pension if Method statement 1 applied to the person: the
                       result is called the notional income/assets tested rate.
                       Note: This is the only situation in which a blind person’s pension
                             can be made subject to an income test or assets test (see point
                             SCH6-A3).

             Step 2.   Work out the person’s maximum basic rate using

                    (a)    the ceiling rate; and

                    (b)    any amount obtained under step 1A; and

                    (c)    any amount obtained under step 3;

                   and, if an election by the person under subsection 60A(1)
                   (about quarterly pension supplement) is in force, subtract
                   the person’s minimum pension supplement amount. The
                   result is the person’s rate of service pension.
                   Note:        The amount of a fortnightly instalment of service
                                pension may be reduced by an advance payment
                                deduction (see Division 6 of Part IVA).


         Method statement 5 (income support supplement, not blind)
    (6) The rate of income support supplement for a person who is not
        permanently blind is worked out in accordance with Method
        statement 5.

         Method statement 5

         Step 1.   Work out the amount of the person’s maximum basic
                   rate using MODULE B below.




                               Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986                      69
Schedule 6 Calculation of rates of service pension and income support supplement
Part 2 Rate Calculator
Module A Overall rate calculation process




             Step 1A. Work out the amount of pension supplement using
                      Module BA below.

             Step 2.   Work out the amount per year (if any) for rent assistance
                       using MODULE C below.

             Step 4.   Add up the amounts obtained in Steps 1, 1A and 2: the
                       result is called the maximum payment rate.

             Step 5.   Apply the ordinary/adjusted income test using MODULE
                       E below to work out the reduction for ordinary/adjusted
                       income.

             Step 6.   Take the reduction for ordinary/adjusted income away
                       from the maximum payment rate: the result is called the
                       income reduced rate.

             Step 7.   Apply the assets test using MODULE F below to work
                       out the reduction for assets.

             Step 8.   Take the reduction for assets away from the maximum
                       payment rate: the result is called the assets reduced rate.

             Step 9.   Work out the person’s ceiling rate in accordance with
                       points SCH6-A4 to SCH6-A9.

             Step 9A. Add:

                        (a)   the ceiling rate; and

                        (b)   any amount obtained under step 2;

                       and, if an election by the person under subsection 60A(1)
                       (about quarterly pension supplement) is in force, subtract
                       the person’s minimum pension supplement amount. The
                       result is the increased rate.

             Step 10. Compare the income reduced rate (see Step 6), the assets
                      reduced rate (see Step 8) and the increased rate (see step
                      9A): the person’s provisional payment rate is equal to:

                        (a)   whichever is the lowest of those rates; or

                             higher—the lower rate; or

                    (c)      if the 3 rates are the same—the income reduced
                             rate.

         Step 11. Work out the amount per year (if any) payable by way of
                  remote area allowance using MODULE G below.

         Step 12. Add any amount obtained in Step 11 to the person’s
                  provisional payment rate (see Step 10): the result is the
                  person’s rate of income support supplement.

                   Note 2:       If a person’s assets reduced rate is less than the person’s
                                 adjusted income reduced rate, the person may be able to
                                 take advantage of provisions dealing with financial
                                 hardship (sections 52Y and 52Z).
                   Note 3:       If a person’s rate is, or is to be, an adjusted income
                                 reduced rate or an assets reduced rate, and at least one of
                                 those reduced rates is not a nil rate, the person may be
                                 able to take advantage of provisions dealing with the
                                 pension loans scheme (sections 52ZAAA to 52ZM).

 SCH6-A3 Except for the purposes of Step 1 in Method statement 2
         (applicable in respect of permanently blind service pensioners who
         are not war widows/war widowers—pensioners), a permanently
         blind person’s pension is not subject to an ordinary/adjusted
         income test (compare Module E) or an assets test (compare Module

 SCH6-A4 The ceiling rate for a war widow/war widower—pensioner is
         $3,247.40 unless point SCH6-A5 applies to him or her.
             Note:     For war widow/war widower—pensioner see subsection 5Q(1).
             Note:     The ceiling rate is adjusted 6 monthly in line with service pensions
                       (see section 59LA).

 SCH6-A5 If:
           (a) a person became a war widow/war widower—pensioner
               before 1 November 1986; and
           (b) immediately before that day the person was receiving a social
               security pension at a rate (the pre-November 1986 rate)
               equal to or more than $3,122.60; and
           (c) since that day the person has been continuously receiving the
               social security pension or income support supplement;
         his or her ceiling rate is, subject to point SCH6-A5A, equal to the
         pre-November 1986 rate.
             Note:     For war widow/war widower—pensioner see subsection 5Q(1).

SCH6-A5A On and after 1 July 2000, the ceiling rate referred to in point
         SCH6-A5 is taken to be equal to the pre-November 1986 rate
         increased by 4%.
SCH6-A6      However, if:
              (a) a war widow/war widower—pensioner is a person:

 SCH6-A7 A pension under Part II payable to a war widow/war widower—
         pensioner is compensation reduced if that pension has been
         reduced:
           (a) by taking into account (under subsection 30(3)) the rate, or
               amount, of any payment that he or she is entitled to receive
               under the law of a State or of a foreign country; or
           (b) by taking into account (under Division 5A of that Part) the
               rate at which any compensation is payable to him or her.
             Note:     For war widow/war widower—pensioner see subsection 5Q(1).

 SCH6-A8 A pension under Part IV payable to a war widow/war widower—
         pensioner is compensation reduced if that pension has been
         reduced by taking into account (under Division 4 of that Part) the
         rate at which any compensation is payable to him or her.
             Note:     For war widow/war widower—pensioner see subsection 5Q(1).

 SCH6-A9 The amount of the reduction in the pension under Part II or IV is
         worked out by using the formula:
              Full pension rate – Compensation reduced rate
             where:
             full pension rate means the amount per annum that would have
             been the annual rate of the pension under Part II or IV if it had not
             been reduced.
             compensation reduced rate means the annual rate of pension under
             Part II or IV payable after that pension has been reduced.

Module C—Rent assistance
             Application
 SCH6-C1 Points SCH6-C2 to SCH6-C11 and point SCH6-C15 apply to a
         person who is in receipt of a service pension or an income support
         supplement. Points SCH6-C13 and SCH6-C14 apply only to a
         person who is in receipt of a service pension. Points SCH6-C14B
         and SCH6-C14C apply only to a person who is in receipt of an

             Rent assistance
 SCH6-C2 Rent assistance is an amount that may be added to the maximum
         basic rate or ceiling rate to help cover the cost of rent. Subject to
         points SCH6-C13 and SCH6-C14 (which apply only to a person
         who is in receipt of a service pension) and points SCH6-C14B and
         SCH6-C14C (which apply only to a person who is in receipt of an
         income support supplement), a person who is eligible for rent
         assistance under point SCH6-C3 can have added to his or her
         maximum basic rate or ceiling rate the amount applying to that
         person under Table C-2.

             Eligibility for rent assistance

             Application
SCH6-C12 Points SCH6-C13 and SCH6-C14 apply only to a person who is in
         receipt of a service pension. If such a person or the partner of such
         a person receives either or both a disability pension and permanent
         impairment compensation, the amount of rent assistance worked
         out under Table C-2 may be reduced under point SCH6-C13.
             Note 1:   For disability pension see section 5Q.
             Note 2:   For permanent impairment compensation see point SCH6-C16.

             Effect of disability pension and permanent impairment
             compensation on rate of rent assistance
SCH6-C13 This is how to work out the effect of a person’s disability pension
         and permanent impairment compensation on the person’s rate of
         rent assistance:

             Method statement

             Step 1.   Work out the annual rate of the person’s disability
                       pension and permanent impairment compensation: the
                       result is the person’s disability income.

                       Note 2:     For the treatment of the amount of disability pension and
                                   permanent impairment compensation of members of a
                                   couple see point SCH6-C14.

             Step 2.   Work out the person’s rent assistance free area (see point
                       SCH6-C15 below).

             Step 3.   Work out whether the person’s disability income exceeds
                       the person’s rent assistance free area.

             Step 4.   If the person’s disability income does not exceed the
                       person’s rent assistance free area, the person’s rate of rent
                       assistance worked out under Table C-2 is not affected.

             Step 5.   If the person’s disability income exceeds the person’s
                       rent assistance free area, take the person’s rent assistance
                       free area away from the person’s disability income: the
                       result is the person’s disability income excess.

             Step 6.   Multiply the person’s disability income excess by 0.4: the
                       result is the rent assistance reduction amount.

             Step 7.   Take the person’s rent assistance reduction amount away
                       from the rate of rent assistance worked out under Table
                       C-2: the result is the person’s rate of rent assistance.

             Disability income
SCH6-C14 If a person is a member of a couple, the person’s disability income
         for the purposes of this Module is worked out as follows:
           (a) if each member of the couple receives either or both a
               disability pension and permanent impairment
               compensation—by adding the couple’s annual rates of
               disability pension and permanent impairment compensation
               and dividing the result by 2;
           (b) if only one member of the couple receives either or both a
               disability pension and permanent impairment compensation:
                 (i) where the member receives both a disability pension
                     and permanent impairment compensation—by adding
                     the member’s annual rates of disability pension and

                       (ii) where subparagraph (i) does not apply—by dividing the
                            member’s annual rate of disability pension or permanent
                            impairment compensation by 2.

             Note 2:      For permanent impairment compensation see point SCH6-C16.

             Application
SCH6-C14A Points SCH6-C14B and SCH6-C14C apply only to a person who is
             in receipt of an income support supplement. If such a person, or the
             partner of such a person, receives adjusted disability pension, the
             amount of rent assistance worked out under Table C-2 may be
             reduced under point SCH6-C14B.
             Note:        For adjusted disability pension see point SCH6-C16.

             Effect of adjusted disability pension on rate of rent assistance
SCH6-C14B This is how to work out the effect of a person’s adjusted disability
             pension on the person’s rate of rent assistance:

             Method statement

             Step 1.      Work out the annual rate of the person’s adjusted
                          disability pension: the result is the person’s disability
                          income.
                          Note 1:      For adjusted disability pension see point SCH6-C16.
                          Note 2:      For the treatment of the amount of adjusted disability
                                       pension of members of a couple see point SCH6-C14C.

             Step 2.      Work out the person’s rent assistance free area (see point
                          SCH6-C15 below).

             Step 3.      Work out whether the person’s disability income exceeds
                          the person’s rent assistance free area.

             Step 4.      If the person’s disability income does not exceed the
                          person’s rent assistance free area, the person’s rate of rent
                          assistance worked out under Table C-2 is not affected.




                                      Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986                        85

Part 2 Rate Calculator
Module C Rent assistance




             Step 5.   If the person’s disability income exceeds the person’s
                       rent assistance free area, take the person’s rent assistance
                       free area away from the person’s disability income: the
                       result is the person’s disability income excess.

             Step 6.   Multiply the person’s disability income excess by 0.5: the
                       result is the rent assistance reduction amount.

             Step 7.   Take the person’s rent assistance reduction amount away
                       from the rate of rent assistance worked out under Table
                       C-2: the result is the person’s rate of rent assistance.

             Disability income
SCH6-C14C If a person is a member of a couple, the person’s disability income
             for the purposes of SCH6-C14B is worked out as follows:
               (a) if each member of the couple receives adjusted disability
                   pension—by adding the couple’s annual rates of adjusted
                   disability pension and dividing the result by 2;
               (b) if only one member of the couple receives adjusted disability
                   pension—by dividing the member’s annual rate of adjusted
                   disability pension by 2.
             Note:     For adjusted disability pension see point SCH6-C16.

             How to calculate a person’s rent free area
SCH6-C15 A person’s rent assistance free area is worked out using Table C-3.
         Work out which family situation in Table C-3 applies to the
         person.

               Rent assistance examples
               Note:         The following examples are based on the amounts and rates set out in
                             this Module at the commencement of this Schedule (see clause 5 of
                             Part 1 of this Schedule).
               Example 1:
               Facts:        Ross is a single service pensioner without children. Ross does not
                             receive any disability pension and pays $120 per week rent.
               Result:       Item 1 in Table C-2 applies to Ross.
                             Rate A for Ross is $3,287.70 calculated as follows:

3     Annual rent   – Rent threshold rate 
                                                
                                                     3     $120    52  – $1,856.40 
                                                                                             $3,287.70
                       4                                                4

                             Rate B for Ross is $1,939.60.
                             As the maximum rate of rent assistance is the lesser of Rates A and B,
                             Ross’s rate of rent assistance is 1,939.60 per year. Ross will receive
                             $74.60 per fortnight.
               Example 2:
               Facts:        Ted and Pam are members of a pensioner couple without children.
                             They rent a house for $160 per week. Ted receives 100% disability
                             pension ($6,255.60 per year). Pam receives the wife’s component of
                             disability pension ($210.60 per year).
               Result:       Item 2 in Table C-2 applies to Ted and Pam.
                             Rate A for Ted is $2,553.50 calculated as follows:

                              3     $160    52  – $1, 510.60
                                                                         $2,553.50
                                                 8

                             Rate B for Ted is $915.20.
                             As the lesser rate is $915.20, this is the maximum rent assistance that
                             Ted can receive. However, as both Ted and Pam receive disability
                             pension, the Rent Assistance Income Test in point SCH6-C13 applies.
                             Ted’s disability pension income is:
                              $6,255.60  $210.60
                                                            $3,233.10

                       Item 2 of Table C-3 applies. Ted’s disability pension income excess is
                       the disability pension income less the rent assistance free area:

                        $3,233.10 – $2,236.00  $997.10
                       The reduction in rent assistance is:
                        $997.10
                                   $498.55
                           2

                       The rent assistance Ted will receive per year is Rate B less amount of
                       rent reduction:

                        $915.20 – $498.55  $416.65

                       Ted will receive $16.03 per fortnight.
                       The same calculation applies to Pam’s rate of rent assistance.

SCH6-C16 In this Module:
             adjusted disability pension has the same meaning as in
             section 118NA.
             permanent impairment compensation means:
              (a) any payment of a weekly amount under section 68, 71 or 75
                  of the MRCA (permanent impairment); and
              (b) if the person was paid a lump sum under section 68, 71 or 75

Module E—Ordinary/adjusted income test
            Definition
 SCH6-E1 In this Module:
            ordinary/adjusted income means:
              (a) for the purpose of the calculation of the rate of service
                  pension—ordinary income; or
             (b) for the purpose of the calculation of the rate of income
                  support supplement—adjusted income.
            Note:     For ordinary income and adjusted income see section 5H.

            Effect of income on maximum payment rate
 SCH6-E2 This is how to work out the effect of a person’s ordinary/adjusted
         income on the person’s maximum payment rate:

            Method statement

            Step 1.   Work out the annual rate of the person’s
                      ordinary/adjusted income.
                      Note: For the treatment of the ordinary/adjusted income of members
                            of a couple see point SCH6-E3.

            Step 2.   Work out the person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area
                      (see point SCH6-E6 below).
                      Note:       A person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area is the
                                  maximum amount of ordinary/adjusted income the
                                  person can have without affecting the person’s pension
                                  rate.

            Step 3.   Work out whether the person’s ordinary/adjusted income
                      exceeds the person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area.

            Step 4.   If the person’s ordinary/adjusted income does not exceed
                      the person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area, the
                      person’s ordinary/adjusted income excess is nil.

Module E Ordinary/adjusted income test




             Step 5.   If the person’s ordinary/adjusted income exceeds the
                       person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area, the person’s
                       ordinary/adjusted income excess is the person’s
                       ordinary/adjusted income less the person’s
                       ordinary/adjusted income free area.

             Step 6.   Use the person’s ordinary/adjusted income excess to
                       work out the person’s reduction for ordinary/adjusted
                       income using point SCH6-E11 below.
                       Note 1:     See the Method statements in point SCH6-A1 for the
                                   significance of the person’s reduction for
                                   ordinary/adjusted income.
                       Note 2:     The application of the ordinary/adjusted income test is
                                   affected by provisions about the following:
                                  (a) the general concept of ordinary income (sections 46
                                        and 46A);
                                  (aa) the work bonus (section 46AA);
                                  (b) business income (sections 46B and 46C);
                                  (c) deemed income from financial assets (sections 46D
                                        to 46M);
                                  (d) income from income streams (sections 46Q to
                                        46YA);
                                  (e) disposal of income (sections 48-48E).


             Ordinary/adjusted incomes of members of couples
 SCH6-E3 If a person is a member of a couple, add the annual rates of the
         couple’s ordinary/adjusted incomes and divide by 2 to work out the
         amount of the person’s ordinary/adjusted income for the purposes
         of this Module. However, in making this calculation disregard any
         amount that is taken (whether for the purposes of this Act or of the
         Social Security Act) to be ordinary income of either partner
         because of section 59TA of this Act or section 1174 of the Social
         Security Act.

             Additional ordinary income because of excess compensation
             payments
SCH6-E3A Add to the amount derived for a person under point SCH6-E3 any
         amount that is taken (whether for the purposes of this Act or of the

           Payment of arrears of periodic compensation payments
SCH6-E4 If:
          (a) at the time of an event that gives rise to an entitlement of a
              person to compensation, the person is receiving a
              compensation affected pension; and
          (b) in relation to the entitlement, the person receives a payment
              (an arrears payment) of arrears of periodic compensation;
        the person is taken to receive on each day in the periodic payments
        period an amount calculated by dividing the amount of the arrears
        payment by the number of days in the periodic payments period.
           Note:     For event that gives rise to an entitlement to compensation,
                     compensation affected pension and periodic payments period see
                     section 5NB.

           Ordinary/adjusted income free area
SCH6-E5 A person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area is the amount of
        ordinary/adjusted income the person can have without any
        deduction being made from the person’s maximum payment rate.

           How to calculate a person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area
SCH6-E6 A person’s ordinary/adjusted income free area is worked out using
        Table E-1. Work out which family situation in Table E-1 applies to
        the person. The ordinary/adjusted income free area is the
        corresponding amount in column 3.

Module F—Assets test
            Effect of assets on maximum payment rate
 SCH6-F1 This is how to work out the effect of a person’s assets on the
         person’s maximum payment rate:

            Method statement

            Step 1.   Work out the value of the person’s assets.
                      Note 1:     For the treatment of the assets of members of a couple
                                  see point SCH6-F2.
                      Note 2:     For the assets that are to be disregarded in valuing a
                                  person’s assets see section 52.
                      Note 3:     For the valuation of an asset that is subject to a charge or
                                  encumbrance see sections 52C and 52CA.

            Step 2.   Work out the person’s assets value limit (see point
                      SCH6-F3 below).
                      Note: A person’s assets value limit is the maximum value of assets
                            the person can have without affecting the person’s pension
                            rate.

            Step 3.   Work out whether the value of the person’s assets
                      exceeds the person’s assets value limit.

            Step 4.   If the value of the person’s assets does not exceed the
                      person’s assets value limit, the person’s assets excess is
                      nil.

            Step 5.   If the value of the person’s assets exceeds the person’s
                      assets value limit, the person’s assets excess is the value
                      of the person’s assets less the person’s assets value limit.

            Step 6.   Use the person’s assets excess to work out the person’s
                      reduction for assets using point SCH6-F4 below.
                      Note 1:     See the Method statements in point SCH6-A1 for the
                                  significance of the person’s reduction for assets.

                       Note 2:     The application of the assets test is affected by
                                   provisions about the following:
                                  (a) disposal of assets (sections 52E – 52JE);
                                  (b) special residences (sections 52KA – 52X);
                                  (c) financial hardship (sections 52Y and 52Z);
                                  (d) the pensions loans scheme (sections
                                       52ZAAA – 52ZM.


             Value of assets of members of couples
  SCH6-F2 For the purposes of this Module:
           (a) the value of the assets of a member of a couple is taken to be
                50% of the sum of:
                  (i) the value of the person’s assets; and
                 (ii) the value of the person’s partner’s assets; and
           (b) the value of the assets of a particular kind of a member of a
                couple is taken to be 50% of the sum of:
                  (i) the value of the person’s assets of that kind; and
                 (ii) the value of the person’s partner’s assets of that kind.

             Assets value limit
  SCH6-F3 A person’s assets value limit is worked out using Table F-1. Work
          out the person’s family situation and property ownership situation.
          The assets value limit is the corresponding amount in column 3.

                       couples.
             Note 4:   The assets value limit in column 3B of item 1 is adjusted annually in
                       line with CPI increases (see section 59H). The other assets value
                       limits are indexed annually in line with CPI increases (see
                       sections 59B to 59E).

             Pension reduction for assets in excess of assets value limit
SCH6-F4(1) A person’s reduction for assets is worked out by using the formula:
             (Assets excess)  9.75
                       250

             where:
             assets excess means the value of the person’s assets less the
             person’s assets value limit.
        (2) In calculating a person’s assets excess under subpoint (1),
            disregard any part of the excess that is not a multiple of $250.

Module G—Remote area allowance
             Remote area allowance
 SCH6-G1 An amount by way of remote area allowance is to be included in a
         person’s rate of pension if:
          (a) one of the following subparagraphs applies:
                (i) the person’s rate of pension apart from this point is
                    greater than nil; or
               (ii) the person’s rate of pension apart from this point is nil
                    merely because an advance pharmaceutical allowance
                    has been paid to the person under Part 2.23 of the Social
                    Security Act; or
              (iii) the person’s rate of pension apart from this point is nil
                    merely because of the operation of Part IVA; and
          (b) the person’s usual place of residence is situated in the remote
              area; and
          (c) the person is physically present in the remote area.
             Note:     For remote area and physically present in the remote area see
                       section 5Q.

             Rate of remote area allowance
 SCH6-G2 The rate of remote area allowance payable to a person is worked
         out using Table G. Work out which family situation in the table
         applies to the person. The rate of remote area allowance is the
         corresponding amount in column 3 plus an additional
         corresponding amount in column 5 for each FTB child, and each
         regular care child, of the person.

         child, or a regular care child, (as the case requires) of the person.

             Special rule dealing with the death of an FTB or regular care child
 SCH6-G6 If an FTB child, or a regular care child, of a person dies, this
         Module has effect, for a period of 14 weeks after the death of the
         child, as if the child had not died.
             Note:     This point does not prevent this Module having the effect it would
                       have had if the child would otherwise have ceased to be an FTB child,
                       or a regular care child, during that 14 weeks.

Note 2

Veterans’ Affairs and Other Legislation Amendment (Pension Reform) Act 2009
       (No. 81, 2009)

The following amendments commence immediately after the commencement of
Part 1 of Schedule 3 to the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Amendment
(Household Assistance) Act 2009 (still a Bill). However, the amendments may
not commence, see subsection 2(1) (item 13):

Schedule 5

1 Division 5 of Part XII
         Repeal the Division, substitute:

Division 5—Increases related to Carbon Pollution
          Reduction Scheme
Subdivision A—Introduction

198P Objects of this Division
         (1) The main object of this Division is to increase certain amounts that
             affect the rate at which payments of the following kinds are made
             under this Act to certain persons, on account of the Carbon
             Pollution Reduction Scheme’s estimated cost of living increase:
               (a) disability pensions (as defined in subsection 5Q(1));
               (b) service pensions;
               (c) pensions payable to war widow/war widower-pensioners.
         (2) Another object of this Division is to adjust indexation of those
             amounts after they are increased, to reflect the inclusion in the
             increases of elements brought forward from the Carbon Pollution
             Reduction Scheme’s estimated cost of living increase.

Subdivision B—Increases in disability pension

198Q What this Subdivision applies to
            This Subdivision applies to each amount (the base amount)
            provided for in an item of the table.

 Amounts that are increased
     Column 1                Column 2
     Provision for base      Description of amount
     amount
 1   Subsection 22(3)        General rate of disability pension
 2   Subsection 22(4)        Extreme disablement adjustment rate of disability
                             pension
 3   Subsection 23(4)        Intermediate rate of disability pension
 4   Subsection 24(4)        Special rate of disability pension
 5   Subsection 27(1),       Increased rate of disability pension for certain
     table items 1 to 15     war-caused injuries and diseases
            Note:       Amounts provided for in the table are amounts as affected from time
                        to time by sections 198 and 198D (as affected by Subdivision C, if
                        relevant).


198R Increase of 1% on 1 July 2011
            This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2011, each base amount were
            replaced by an amount worked out by:
              (a) calculating the amount (the provisional replacement
                  amount) that is 1% greater than the base amount; and
              (b) if the provisional replacement amount is not a multiple of
                  $0.10, rounding up or down to the nearest multiple of $0.10
                  (rounding up if the provisional replacement amount is a
                  multiple of $0.05).
            Note:       The 1% increase includes the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme’s
                        estimated cost of living increase of 0.4% for the 2011-2012 financial
                        year, which has been brought forward. The changes to the indexation
                        factors on or after 20 March 2012 under section 198T or 198U take
                        account of this brought forward increase.




                                  Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986                        247
Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


Note 2


198S Increase of 1.8% on 1 July 2012
             This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2012, each base amount were
             replaced by an amount worked out by:
               (a) calculating the amount (the provisional replacement
                   amount) that is 1.8% greater than the base amount; and
               (b) if the provisional replacement amount is not a multiple of
                   $0.10, rounding up or down to the nearest multiple of $0.10
                   (rounding up if the provisional replacement amount is a
                   multiple of $0.05).
             Note:     The 1.8% increase includes the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme’s
                       estimated cost of living increase of 0.8% for the 2012-2013 financial
                       year, which has also been brought forward. The changes to the
                       indexation factors on or after 20 March 2013 under section 198V or
                       198W take account of this 2nd brought forward increase.

Subdivision C—Adjustment of indexation of disability pension

198T Special rules for indexation of certain rates of disability
         pension on or after 20 March 2012
         (1) An indexation factor that:
               (a) is worked out under section 59D for indexation on a day that
                    is on or after 20 March 2012; and
               (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of an amount
                    provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4);
             is, for the purposes of the indexation of such an amount on that
             day, to be reduced by the brought forward CPI indexation amount,
             but not below 1.
             Note 1:   An indexation factor worked out under section 59D is (indirectly)
                       relevant to the indexation of an amount provided for by subsection
                       22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4). This is because:
                       (a) section 198 provides for indexation of such an amount by
                            reference to the pension MBR factor worked out under
                            section 59LA; and
                       (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                            pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                            section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under
                            section 59C, which involves the indexation factor worked out
                            under section 59D.
             Note 2:   The indexation of an amount provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4)
                       or 23(4) or 24(4) on that day depends on a pension MBR factor that is
                       worked out on the basis of the indexation factor worked out under
                       section 59D and reduced under this section.

                              Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


                                                                             Note 2

    Note 3:    Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
               will be no further reduction of the indexation factor.
    Example: Assume that the indexation factor worked out under section 59D on
             20 March 2012 is 1.003. The brought forward CPI indexation amount
             in relation to 20 March 2012 is 0.004 (as there has been no previous
             reduction). That indexation factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2012.
               Further assume that on 20 September 2012 the indexation factor
               worked out under section 59D is 1.010. The brought forward CPI
               indexation amount in relation to 20 September 2012 is 0.001. That
               indexation factor is reduced to 1.009 on 20 September 2012.
               The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
               indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the
               indexation factor.

(2) A living cost indexation factor that:
      (a) is worked out under section 59EAB for indexation on a day
           that is on or after 20 March 2012; and
      (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of an amount
           provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4);
    is, for the purposes of the indexation of such an amount on that
    day, to be reduced by the brought forward PBLCI indexation
    amount, but not below 1.
    Note 1:    A living cost indexation factor worked out under section 59EAB is
               (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of an amount provided for by
               subsection 22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4). This is because:
               (a) section 198 provides for indexation of such an amount by
                    reference to the pension MBR factor worked out under
                    section 59LA; and
               (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                    pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                    section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under
                    section 59C, which involves the living cost indexation factor
                    worked out under section 59EAB.
    Note 2:    The indexation of an amount provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4)
               or 23(4) or 24(4) on that day depends on a pension MBR factor that is
               worked out on the basis of the living cost indexation factor worked out
               under section 59EAB and reduced under this section.
    Note 3:    Once the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount becomes 0, there
               will be no further reduction of the living cost indexation factor.
    Example: Assume that the living cost indexation factor worked out under
             section 59EAB on 20 March 2012 is 1.003. The brought forward
             PBLCI indexation amount in relation to 20 March 2012 is 0.004 (as
             there has been no previous reduction). That living cost indexation
             factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2012.
               Further assume that on 20 September 2012 the living cost indexation
               factor is 1.010. The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in

Note 2

                        relation to 20 September 2012 is 0.001. That living cost indexation
                        factor is reduced to 1.009 on 20 September 2012.
                        The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation to later
                        indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the living
                        cost indexation factor.

         (3) In this section:
             brought forward CPI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
             means:
               (a) if the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation
                   to the day is 0—0; and
              (b) otherwise—0.004 less any reduction made under
                   subsection (1) for a previous day.
             brought forward PBLCI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
             means:
               (a) if the brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to
                   the day is 0—0; and
              (b) otherwise—0.004 less any reduction made under
                   subsection (2) for a previous day.
         (4) This section affects the rate of a payment under this Act for a
             person if, and only if, section 198R affected that rate for the
             person.

198U Special rules for indexation of increased rate of disability
         pension on or after 20 March 2012
         (1) A factor worked out under subsection 198(5) or 198D(5) for
             indexation of an amount provided for by an item of the table in
             subsection 27(1) on a day that is on or after 20 March 2012 is, for
             the purposes of that indexation, to be reduced by the brought
             forward CPI indexation amount, but not below 1.
             Note:      Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                        will be no further reduction of the factor.
             Example: Assume that the factor worked out under subsection 198(5) on
                      20 March 2012 is 1.003. The brought forward CPI indexation amount
                      in relation to 20 March 2012 is 0.004 (as there has been no previous
                      reduction). That factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2012.
                        Further assume that on 20 September 2012 the factor worked out
                        under subsection 198(5) is 1.010. The brought forward CPI indexation
                        amount in relation to 20 September 2012 is 0.001. That factor is
                        reduced to 1.009 on 20 September 2012.

                      The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
                      indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the factor.

       (2) In this section:
           brought forward CPI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
           means 0.004 less any reduction made under subsection (1) for a
           previous day.
       (3) This section affects the rate of a payment under this Act for a
           person if, and only if, section 198R affected that rate for the
           person.

198V Special rules for indexation of certain rates of disability
         pension on or after 20 March 2013
       (1) An indexation factor that:
             (a) is worked out under section 59D for indexation on a day that
                  is on or after 20 March 2013; and
             (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of an amount
                  provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4);
           is, for the purposes of the indexation of such an amount on that
           day, to be reduced by the brought forward CPI indexation amount,
           but not below 1.
           Note 1:    An indexation factor worked out under section 59D is (indirectly)
                      relevant to the indexation of an amount provided for by subsection
                      22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4). This is because:
                      (a) section 198 provides for indexation of such an amount by
                           reference to the pension MBR factor worked out under
                           section 59LA; and
                      (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                           pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                           section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under
                           section 59C, which involves the indexation factor worked out
                           under section 59D.
           Note 2:    The indexation of an amount provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4)
                      or 23(4) or 24(4) on that day depends on a pension MBR factor that is
                      worked out on the basis of the indexation factor worked out under
                      section 59D and reduced under this section.
           Note 3:    Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                      will be no further reduction of the indexation factor.
           Example: Assume that the indexation factor worked out under section 59D on
                    20 March 2013 is 1.005. The brought forward CPI indexation amount
                    in relation to 20 March 2013 is 0.008 (as there has been no previous
                    reduction). That indexation factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2013.

Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


Note 2

                        Further assume that on 20 September 2013 the indexation factor is
                        1.010. The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to
                        20 September 2013 is 0.003. That indexation factor is reduced to
                        1.007 on 20 September 2013.
                        The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
                        indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the
                        indexation factor.

         (2) A living cost indexation factor that:
               (a) is worked out under section 59EAB for indexation on a day
                    that is on or after 20 March 2013; and
               (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of an amount
                    provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4);
             is, for the purposes of the indexation of such an amount on that
             day, to be reduced by the brought forward PBLCI indexation
             amount, but not below 1.
             Note 1:    A living cost indexation factor worked out under section 59EAB is
                        (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of an amount provided for by
                        subsection 22(3) or (4) or 23(4) or 24(4). This is because:
                        (a) section 198 provides for indexation of such an amount by
                             reference to the pension MBR factor worked out under
                             section 59LA; and
                        (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                             pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                             section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under
                             section 59C, which involves the living cost indexation factor
                             worked out under section 59EAB.
             Note 2:    The indexation of an amount provided for by subsection 22(3) or (4)
                        or 23(4) or 24(4) on that day depends on a pension MBR factor that is
                        worked out on the basis of the living cost indexation factor worked out
                        under section 59EAB and reduced under this section.
             Note 3:    Once the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                        will be no further reduction of the living cost indexation factor.
             Example: Assume that the living cost indexation factor worked out under
                      section 59EAB on 20 March 2013 is 1.005. The brought forward
                      PBLCI indexation amount in relation to 20 March 2013 is 0.008 (as
                      there has been no previous reduction). That living cost indexation
                      factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2013.
                        Further assume that on 20 September 2013 the living cost indexation
                        factor is 1.010. The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in
                        relation to 20 September 2013 is 0.003. That living cost indexation
                        factor is reduced to 1.007 on 20 September 2013.
                        The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation to later
                        indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the living
                        cost indexation factor.

           brought forward CPI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
           means:
             (a) if the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation
                 to the day is 0—0; and

                 subsection (2) for a previous day.
       (4) This section affects the rate of a payment under this Act for a
           person if, and only if, section 198S affected that rate for the person.

198W Special rules for indexation of increased rate of disability
        pension on or after 20 March 2013
       (1) A factor worked out under subsection 198(5) or 198D(5) for
           indexation of an amount provided for by an item of the table in
           subsection 27(1) on a day that is on or after 20 March 2013 is, for
           the purposes of that indexation, to be reduced by the brought
           forward CPI indexation amount, but not below 1.
           Note:      Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                      will be no further reduction of the factor.
           Example: Assume that the factor worked out under subsection 198(5) on
                    20 March 2013 is 1.005. The brought forward CPI indexation amount
                    in relation to 20 March 2013 is 0.008 (as there has been no previous
                    reduction). That factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2013.
                      Further assume that on 20 September 2013 the factor worked out
                      under subsection 198(5) is 1.010. The brought forward CPI indexation
                      amount in relation to 20 September 2013 is 0.003. That factor is
                      reduced to 1.007 on 20 September 2013.
                      The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
                      indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the factor.

Subdivision D—Increases in certain persons’ service pension
          relating to 1 July 2011

198X Application of this Subdivision
         (1) This Subdivision applies to a person if, on or after 1 July 2011:
              (a) the person is receiving service pension; and
              (b) the person is not a war widow/war widower-pensioner; and
              (c) the person’s pension supplement amount is more than the
                   person’s pension supplement basic amount.
         (2) This Subdivision applies for purposes connected with the person’s
             service pension on and after 1 July 2011 while he or she is not a
             war widow/war widower-pensioner.
             Note:     This Subdivision does not affect (directly or indirectly) on or after
                       1 July 2011:
                       (a) the rate of service pension of a war widow/war
                            widower-pensioner; or

                       (c) the minimum pension supplement amount of a person who is a
                            war widow/war widower-pensioner.


198Y Increase of 1% on 1 July 2011
         (1) This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2011, the PS rate (within the
             meaning of section 59A) used to work out the person’s pension
             supplement amount on and after that day were replaced by the PS
             rate needed for the person’s pension supplement amount to be
             equal to the amount worked out by:
               (a) adding the person’s CPRS amount to what, apart from this
                   section, would be the person’s pension supplement amount
                   on that day; and
               (b) if the amount resulting from paragraph (a) is not a multiple of
                   $2.60, rounding the amount up or down to the nearest

                                                                                    Note 2

                   multiple of $2.60 (rounding up if the amount is a multiple of
                   $1.30).
       (2) This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2011, the PS minimum rate
           (within the meaning of section 59A) used to work out the person’s
           minimum pension supplement amount on and after that day were
           replaced by the PS minimum rate needed for the person’s
           minimum pension supplement amount to be equal to the amount
           worked out by:
             (a) adding the person’s CPRS amount to what, apart from this
                 section, would be the person’s minimum pension supplement
                 amount on that day; and
             (b) if the amount resulting from paragraph (a) is not a multiple of
                 $2.60, rounding the amount up or down to the nearest
                 multiple of $2.60 (rounding up if the amount is a multiple of
                 $1.30).
       (3) In this section:
           CPRS amount, for a person, means the sum of the following
           amounts:
            (a) 1% of the person’s maximum basic rate worked out under
                point SCH6-B1 of Schedule 6;
            (b) 1% of the person’s pension supplement basic amount.
           Note:      The 1% increase includes the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme’s
                      estimated cost of living increase of 0.4% for the 2011-2012 financial
                      year, which has been brought forward. Subsection 198Z(2), and the
                      change to the indexation factor, and living cost indexation factor, on
                      or after 20 March 2012 under section 198Z, take account of this
                      brought forward increase.


198Z Special rules for indexation of some amounts on or after
         20 March 2012
       (1) An indexation factor worked out under section 59D for each
           indexation day on or after 20 March 2012 for each of the
           following:
             (a) the person’s maximum basic rate worked out under point
                  SCH6-B1 of Schedule 6;
             (b) the person’s PS minimum rate (within the meaning of
                  section 59A);
           is to be reduced by the brought forward CPI indexation amount,
           but not below 1.


                                 Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986                         255
Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


Note 2

             Note 1:    The person’s PS minimum rate is that rate as increased under
                        subsection 198Y(2).
             Note 2:    Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                        will be no further reduction of the factor.
             Example: Assume that the indexation factor worked out under section 59D on
                      20 March 2012 is 1.003. The brought forward CPI indexation amount
                      in relation to 20 March 2012 is 0.004 (as there has been no previous
                      reduction). That indexation factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2012.
                        Further assume that on 20 September 2012 the indexation factor is
                        1.010. The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to
                        20 September 2012 is 0.001. That indexation factor is reduced to
                        1.009 on 20 September 2012.
                        The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
                        indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the
                        indexation factor.

         (2) If the indexation factor worked out under section 59D for an
             indexation day is reduced under subsection (1), this Act has effect
             as if, on that day, the PS rate (within the meaning of section 59A)
             used to work out the person’s pension supplement amount on and
             after that day were replaced by the PS rate needed for the person’s
             pension supplement amount to be equal to the amount worked out
             as follows:

             Method statement
             Step 1.    Work out the person’s minimum pension supplement
                        amount on that day.
             Step 2.    Work out what would, apart from subsection (1), be the
                        person’s minimum pension supplement amount on that
                        day.
             Step 3.    Subtract the result of step 1 from the result of step 2.
             Step 4.    Subtract the result of step 3 from what would, apart from
                        this subsection, be the person’s pension supplement
                        amount on that day.
             Step 5.    If the result of step 4 is not a multiple of $2.60, round the
                        result up or down to the nearest multiple of $2.60
                        (rounding up if the result is a multiple of $1.30).

             Note 1:    The amount in step 1 is the amount worked out from the PS minimum
                        rate (within the meaning of section 59A) as adjusted under
                        subsection (1).

                             Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


                                                                             Note 2

    Note 2:   The amount in step 2 is the amount worked out from the PS minimum
              rate as increased under subsection 198Y(2), and as indexed under
              section 59C, but without the adjustment under subsection (1) of this
              section.
    Note 3:   For step 4, the amount that would, apart from this subsection, be the
              person’s pension supplement amount is the amount worked out from
              the PS rate (within the meaning of section 59A) as increased under
              subsection 198Y(1) and as indexed under section 59C.

(3) A living cost indexation factor, worked out under section 59EAB
    for each indexation day on or after 20 March 2012 for the person’s
    maximum basic rate worked out under point SCH6-B1 of
    Schedule 6, is to be reduced by the brought forward PBLCI
    indexation amount, but not below 1.
    Note:     Once the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount becomes 0, there
              will be no further reduction of the factor.
    Example: Assume that the living cost indexation factor worked out under
             section 59EAB on 20 March 2012 is 1.003. The brought forward
             PBLCI indexation amount in relation to 20 March 2012 is 0.004 (as
             there has been no previous reduction). That indexation factor is
             reduced to 1 on 20 March 2012.
              Further assume that on 20 September 2012 the living cost indexation
              factor is 1.010. The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in
              relation to 20 September 2012 is 0.001. That indexation factor is
              reduced to 1.009 on 20 September 2012.
              The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation to later
              indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the living
              cost indexation factor.

(4) In this section:
    brought forward CPI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
    means:
      (a) if the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation
          to the day is 0—0; and
     (b) otherwise—0.004 less any reduction made under
          subsection (1) for a previous day.
    brought forward PBLCI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
    means:
      (a) if the brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to
          the day is 0—0; and
     (b) otherwise—0.004 less any reduction made under
          subsection (3) for a previous day.

              (a) the person is receiving service pension; and
              (b) the person is not a war widow/war widower-pensioner; and
              (c) the person’s pension supplement amount is more than the
                   person’s pension supplement basic amount.
         (2) This Subdivision applies for purposes connected with the person’s
             service pension on and after 1 July 2012 while he or she is not a
             war widow/war widower-pensioner.
             Note:     This Subdivision does not affect (directly or indirectly) on or after

                       (c) the minimum pension supplement amount of a person who is a
                            war widow/war widower-pensioner.


198ZB Increase of 1.8% on 1 July 2012
         (1) This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2012, the PS rate (within the
             meaning of section 59A) used to work out the person’s pension
             supplement amount on and after that day were replaced by the PS
             rate needed for the person’s pension supplement amount to be
             equal to the amount worked out by:
               (a) adding the person’s CPRS amount to what, apart from this
                   section, would be the person’s pension supplement amount
                   on that day; and
               (b) if the amount resulting from paragraph (a) is not a multiple of
                   $2.60, rounding the amount up or down to the nearest
                   multiple of $2.60 (rounding up if the amount is a multiple of
                   $1.30).
         (2) This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2012, the PS minimum rate
             (within the meaning of section 59A) used to work out the person’s
             minimum pension supplement amount on and after that day were
             replaced by the PS minimum rate needed for the person’s

                                   Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


                                                                                    Note 2

           minimum pension supplement amount to be equal to the amount
           worked out by:
            (a) adding the person’s CPRS amount to what, apart from this
                section, would be the person’s minimum pension supplement
                amount on that day; and
            (b) if the amount resulting from paragraph (a) is not a multiple of
                $2.60, rounding the amount up or down to the nearest
                multiple of $2.60 (rounding up if the amount is a multiple of
                $1.30).
       (3) In this section:
           CPRS amount, for a person, means the sum of the following
           amounts:
            (a) 1.8% of the person’s maximum basic rate worked out under
                point SCH6-B1 of Schedule 6;
            (b) 1.8% of the person’s pension supplement basic amount.
           Note:     The 1.8% increase includes the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme’s
                     estimated cost of living increase of 0.8% for the 2012-2013 financial
                     year, which has also been brought forward. Subsection 198ZC(2), and
                     the changes to the indexation factor and living cost indexation factor
                     on or after 20 March 2013 under section 198ZC, take account of this
                     2nd brought forward increase.


198ZC Special rules for indexation of some amounts on or after
         20 March 2013
       (1) An indexation factor worked out under section 59D for each
           indexation day on or after 20 March 2013 for each of the
           following:
             (a) the person’s maximum basic rate worked out under point
                  SCH6-B1 of Schedule 6;
             (b) the person’s PS minimum rate (within the meaning of
                  section 59A);
           is to be reduced by the brought forward CPI indexation amount,
           but not below 1.
           Note 1:   The person’s PS minimum rate is that rate as increased under
                     subsection 198ZB(2).
           Note 2:   Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                     will be no further reduction of the factor.
           Example: Assume that the indexation factor worked out under section 59D on
                    20 March 2013 is 1.005. The brought forward CPI indexation amount



                               Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986                        259
Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


Note 2

                       in relation to 20 March 2013 is 0.008 (as there has been no previous
                       reduction). That indexation factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2013.
                       Further assume that on 20 September 2013 the indexation factor is
                       1.010. The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to
                       20 September 2013 is 0.003. That indexation factor is reduced to
                       1.007 on 20 September 2013.
                       The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
                       indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the
                       indexation factor.

         (2) If the indexation factor worked out under section 59D for an
             indexation day is reduced under subsection (1), this Act has effect
             as if, on that day, the PS rate (within the meaning of section 59A)
             used to work out the person’s pension supplement amount on and
             after that day were replaced by the PS rate needed for the person’s
             pension supplement amount to be equal to the amount worked out
             as follows:

             Method statement
             Step 1.   Work out the person’s minimum pension supplement
                       amount on that day.
             Step 2.   Work out what would, apart from subsection (1), be the
                       person’s minimum pension supplement amount on that
                       day.
             Step 3.   Subtract the result of step 1 from the result of step 2.
             Step 4.   Subtract the result of step 3 from what would, apart from
                       this subsection, be the person’s pension supplement
                       amount on that day.
             Step 5.   If the result of step 4 is not a multiple of $2.60, round the
                       result up or down to the nearest multiple of $2.60
                       (rounding up if the result is a multiple of $1.30).

             Note 1:   The amount in step 1 is the amount worked out from the PS minimum
                       rate as adjusted under subsection (1).
             Note 2:   The amount in step 2 is the amount worked out from the PS minimum
                       rate as increased under subsection 198ZB(2), and as indexed under
                       section 59C, but without the adjustment under subsection (1) of this
                       section.
             Note 3:   For step 4, the amount that would, apart from this subsection, be the
                       person’s pension supplement amount is the amount worked out from




260        Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986
                             Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


                                                                             Note 2

              the PS rate as increased under subsection 198ZB(1) and as indexed
              under section 59C.

(3) A living cost indexation factor, worked out under section 59EAB
    for each indexation day on or after 20 March 2013 for the person’s
    maximum basic rate worked out under point SCH6-B1 of
    Schedule 6, is to be reduced by the brought forward PBLCI
    indexation amount, but not below 1.
    Note:     Once the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount becomes 0, there
              will be no further reduction of the factor.
    Example: Assume that the living cost indexation factor worked out under
             section 59EAB on 20 March 2013 is 1.005. The brought forward
             PBLCI indexation amount in relation to 20 March 2013 is 0.008 (as
             there has been no previous reduction). That indexation factor is
             reduced to 1 on 20 March 2013.
              Further assume that on 20 September 2013 the living cost indexation
              factor is 1.010. The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in
              relation to 20 September 2013 is 0.003. That indexation factor is
              reduced to 1.007 on 20 September 2013.
              The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation to later
              indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the living
              cost indexation factor.

(4) In this section:
    brought forward CPI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
    means:
      (a) if the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation
          to the day is 0—0; and
     (b) otherwise—0.008 less any reduction made under
          subsection (1) for a previous day.
    brought forward PBLCI indexation amount, in relation to a day,

     (b) otherwise—0.008 less any reduction made under
          subsection (3) for a previous day.

198ZD Increase of 1% on 1 July 2011
             This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2011:
              (a) the amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) were increased by
                  1% of the sum of:
                    (i) the amount worked out under paragraph 30(1)(a) on that
                        day; and
                   (ii) the amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) on that day
                        apart from this section; and
                  (iii) the amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(c) on that day;
                        and
              (b) if the amount resulting from paragraph (a) is not a multiple of
                  $0.10, rounding the amount up or down to the nearest
                  multiple of $0.10 (rounding up if the amount is a multiple of
                  $0.05).
             Note:     The 1% increase includes the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme’s
                       estimated cost of living increase of 0.4% for the 2011-2012 financial
                       year, which has been brought forward. The changes to the indexation
                       factors on or after 20 March 2012 under section 198ZE take account
                       of this brought forward increase.


198ZE Adjustment of indexation on and after 20 March 2012
         (1) An indexation factor that:
               (a) is worked out under section 59D for indexation on a day that
                    is on or after 20 March 2012; and
               (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of the amount
                    specified in paragraph 30(1)(b);
             is, for the purposes of the indexation of the amount on that day, to
             be reduced by the brought forward CPI indexation amount, but not
             below 1.
             Note 1:   An indexation factor worked out under section 59D is (indirectly)
                       relevant to the indexation of an amount specified in paragraph
                       30(1)(b). This is because:
                       (a) section 198 provides for indexation of the amount by reference to
                            the pension MBR factor worked out under section 59LA; and
                       (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                            pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                            section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under



262        Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986
                              Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


                                                                             Note 2

                    section 59C, which involves the indexation factor worked out
                    under section 59D.
    Note 2:    The indexation of an amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) on that
               day depends on a pension MBR factor that is worked out on the basis
               of the indexation factor worked out under section 59D and reduced
               under this section.
    Note 3:    Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
               will be no further reduction of the indexation factor.
    Example: Assume that the indexation factor worked out under section 59D on
             20 March 2012 is 1.003. The brought forward CPI indexation amount
             in relation to 20 March 2012 is 0.004 (as there has been no previous
             reduction). That indexation factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2012.
               Further assume that on 20 September 2012 the indexation factor
               worked out under section 59D is 1.010. The brought forward CPI
               indexation amount in relation to 20 September 2012 is 0.001. That
               indexation factor is reduced to 1.009 on 20 September 2012.
               The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
               indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the
               indexation factor.

(2) A living cost indexation factor that:
      (a) is worked out under section 59EAB for indexation on a day
           that is on or after 20 March 2012; and
      (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of the amount
           specified in paragraph 30(1)(b);
    is, for the purposes of the indexation of the amount on that day, to
    be reduced by the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount, but
    not below 1.
    Note 1:    A factor worked out under section 59EAB is (indirectly) relevant to
               the indexation of an amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b). This is
               because:
               (a) section 198 provides for indexation of the amount by reference to
                     the pension MBR factor worked out under section 59LA; and
               (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                     pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                     section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under
                     section 59C, which involves the factor worked out under
                     section 59EAB.
    Note 2:    The indexation of an amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) on that
               day depends on a pension MBR factor that is worked out on the basis
               of the factor worked out under section 59EAB and reduced under this
               section.
    Note 3:    Once the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount becomes 0, there
               will be no further reduction of the factor.




                          Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986                         263
Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


Note 2

             Example: Assume that the living cost indexation factor worked out under
                      section 59EAB on 20 March 2012 is 1.003. The brought forward
                      PBLCI indexation amount in relation to 20 March 2012 is 0.004 (as
                      there has been no previous reduction). That living cost indexation
                      factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2012.
                        Further assume that on 20 September 2012 the living cost indexation
                        factor is 1.010. The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in
                        relation to 20 September 2012 is 0.001. That living cost indexation
                        factor is reduced to 1.009 on 20 September 2012.
                        The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation to later
                        indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the living
                        cost indexation factor.

         (3) In this section:
             brought forward CPI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
             means:
               (a) if the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation
                   to the day is 0—0; and
              (b) otherwise—0.004 less any reduction made under
                   subsection (1) for a previous day.
             brought forward PBLCI indexation amount, in relation to a day,
             means:
               (a) if the brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to
                   the day is 0—0; and
              (b) otherwise—0.004 less any reduction made under
                   subsection (2) for a previous day.
         (4) This section affects the rate of a payment under this Act for a
             person if, and only if, section 198ZD affected that rate for the
             person.

198ZF Increase of 1.8% on 1 July 2012
             This Act has effect as if, on 1 July 2012:
              (a) the amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) were increased by
                  1.8% of the sum of:
                    (i) the amount worked out under paragraph 30(1)(a) on that
                        day; and
                   (ii) the amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) on that day
                        apart from this section; and
                  (iii) the amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(c) on that day;
                        and

                                                                                 Note 2

           (b) if the amount resulting from paragraph (a) is not a multiple of

               multiple of $0.10 (rounding up if the amount is a multiple of
               $0.05).
          Note:      The 1.8% increase includes the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme’s
                     estimated cost of living increase of 0.8% for the 2012-2013 financial
                     year, which has also been brought forward. The changes to the
                     indexation factors on or after 20 March 2013 under section 198ZG
                     take account of this 2nd brought forward increase.


198ZG Adjustment of indexation on and after 20 March 2013
      (1) An indexation factor that:
            (a) is worked out under section 59D for indexation on a day that
                 is on or after 20 March 2013; and
            (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of the amount
                 specified in paragraph 30(1)(b);
          is, for the purposes of the indexation of the amount on that day, to
          be reduced by the brought forward CPI indexation amount, but not
          below 1.
          Note 1:    An indexation factor worked out under section 59D is (indirectly)
                     relevant to the indexation of an amount specified in paragraph
                     30(1)(b). This is because:
                     (a) section 198 provides for indexation of the amount by reference to
                          the pension MBR factor worked out under section 59LA; and
                     (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                          pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                          section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under
                          section 59C, which involves the indexation factor worked out
                          under section 59D.
          Note 2:    The indexation of an amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) on that
                     day depends on a pension MBR factor that is worked out on the basis
                     of the indexation factor worked out under section 59D and reduced
                     under this section.
          Note 3:    Once the brought forward CPI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                     will be no further reduction of the indexation factor.
          Example: Assume that the indexation factor worked out under section 59D on
                   20 March 2013 is 1.005. The brought forward CPI indexation amount
                   in relation to 20 March 2013 is 0.008 (as there has been no previous
                   reduction). That indexation factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2013.
                     Further assume that on 20 September 2013 the indexation factor
                     worked out under section 59D is 1.010. The brought forward CPI
                     indexation amount in relation to 20 September 2013 is 0.003. That
                     indexation factor is reduced to 1.007 on 20 September 2013.

Note 2

                        The brought forward CPI indexation amount in relation to later
                        indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the
                        indexation factor.

         (2) A living cost indexation factor that:
               (a) is worked out under section 59EAB for indexation on a day
                    that is on or after 20 March 2013; and
               (b) is (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of the amount
                    specified in paragraph 30(1)(b);
             is, for the purposes of the indexation of the amount on that day, to
             be reduced by the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount, but
             not below 1.
             Note 1:    A living cost indexation factor worked out under section 59EAB is
                        (indirectly) relevant to the indexation of an amount specified in
                        paragraph 30(1)(b). This is because:
                        (a) section 198 provides for indexation of the amount by reference to
                             the pension MBR factor worked out under section 59LA; and
                        (b) the pension MBR factor depends on the increase in the single
                             pension rate MBR amount, which in turn depends (under
                             section 59G) on indexation of the pension MBR amount under
                             section 59C, which involves the living cost indexation factor
                             worked out under section 59EAB.
             Note 2:    The indexation of an amount specified in paragraph 30(1)(b) on that
                        day depends on a pension MBR factor that is worked out on the basis
                        of the living cost indexation factor worked out under section 59EAB
                        and reduced under this section.
             Note 3:    Once the brought forward PBLCI indexation amount becomes 0, there
                        will be no further reduction of the living cost indexation factor.
             Example: Assume that the living cost indexation factor worked out under
                      section 59EAB on 20 March 2013 is 1.005. The brought forward
                      PBLCI indexation amount in relation to 20 March 2013 is 0.008 (as
                      there has been no previous reduction). That living cost indexation
                      factor is reduced to 1 on 20 March 2013.
                        Further assume that on 20 September 2013 the living cost indexation
                        factor is 1.010. The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in
                        relation to 20 September 2013 is 0.003. That living cost indexation
                        factor is reduced to 1.007 on 20 September 2013.
                        The brought forward PBLCI indexation amount in relation to later
                        indexation days is now 0 so there is no further reduction of the living
                        cost indexation factor.

(2)    The circumstances in which the scheme provides for payments must be
       circumstances:
             (a) in which the Minister considers that Part VIID of the
                 Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 does not produce
                 appropriate results; and
             (b) occurring in the financial year starting on 1 July 2005.
(3)    Without limiting the generality of subitem (1), the scheme may deal

              (c) what a person has to do to get a payment;
              (d) debt recovery in circumstances similar to those provided for
                  in section 118ZZF of the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986;
              (e) administrative matters, such as determination of entitlement
                  and how and when payments will be made.
(4)    Payments under the scheme are to be made out of the Consolidated
       Revenue Fund, which is appropriated accordingly.

        requirement of Subdivision A of Division 11B of Part IIIB of the
        Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 concerning a particular matter does not
        prevent the trust being a special disability trust if:
               (a) the Commission, by written notice (an exemption notice) to
                    the trustees, exempts the trust from the requirement as it

                    comply with any conditions relating to the matter—the
                    trustees comply with those conditions within the period (if
                    any) stated in the exemption notice.
Note:   For special disability trust, see section 52ZZZW of the Veterans’ Entitlements Act

        paragraph (1)(b):
              (a) from:
                    (i) the start of 20 September 2006; or
                   (ii) if the exemption notice states a time for the start of its
                        period of effect that is after 20 September 2006—the
                        stated time; and
              (b) until:
                    (i) the end of 30 June 2007; or
                   (ii) if the exemption notice states a time for the end of its

                        the stated time.
(4)     If guidelines are made under subitem (5), a decision in relation to giving
        an exemption notice to the trustees of the trust must be made in
        accordance with the guidelines.

       (No. 105, 2010)

Schedule 2

1 Employer determination made where expected or actual
    date of birth is before 1 July 2011
(1)     The Paid Parental Leave Act 2010 applies, with the modifications set
        out in this item, in relation to a person who has made a claim for
        parental leave pay for a child, if:
               (a) for a claim made before the day the child is born—the
                    expected date of birth of the child is before 1 July 2011; or
               (b) for a claim made after the child is born—the day the child is
                    born is before 1 July 2011.
Note:   For a claim made before the day the child is born, see subitem (9) if the expected date of
        birth of the child is before 1 July 2011, but the child is born on or after that date.

(2)     Section 101 of that Act (and the other provisions of that Act so far as
        they relate to that section) applies in relation to the person as if
        subsections (1) and (2) of that section were omitted and the following
        subsection substituted:
        (1) The Secretary must make a determination under this section (the
            employer determination) that a person’s employer is to pay the
            person instalments if the Secretary is satisfied, when making the
            determination, that:
             (a) a payability determination that parental leave pay is payable
                 to the person, or an initial eligibility determination for the
                 person, is in force; and
             (b) the employer has made an election under section 109 that
                 applies to the person; and
             (c) the person has consented in the claim to the employer paying
                 instalments to the person; and
             (d) the person is likely to be an Australian-based employee of the
                 employer during whichever of the following periods applies:
                   (i) if the Secretary has made a payability determination that
                       parental leave pay is payable to the person—the
                       person’s PPL period;

                                  Notes to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986


                                                                         Table A

                 (ii) otherwise—the period of days for which instalments are
                      likely, if the determination is made, to be payable to the
                      person by the employer; and
            (e) the employer has an ABN; and
            (f) if paragraphs (b) to (e) are satisfied in relation to more than
                one employer of the person—the person nominated the
                employer in the claim as the employer who would be
                required to pay instalments to the person.
(3)   For the purposes of this item, an employer determination made under
      subsection 101(1), as that subsection applies because of subitem (2) of
      this item, is a transitional employer determination.
(4)   The following provisions of that Act do not apply in relation to a
      transitional employer determination:
             (a) section 103 (which deals with responding to a notice of an
                 employer determination);
             (b) subsection 107(2) (which deals with when an employer
                 determination comes into force);
             (c) subsections 207(3) and 224(1) (which deal with applying for
                 review of employer determination decisions).
(5)   Within 14 days after the date of the notice given under section 102 of
      that Act in relation to the transitional employer determination, the
      employer may give the Secretary a written notice (the acceptance
      notice) that complies with section 104 of that Act.
(6)   If the employer gives the acceptance notice to the Secretary within that
      14 day period, the transitional employer determination comes into force
      on the day the Secretary receives the acceptance notice.
(7)   If the employer does not give the acceptance notice to the Secretary
      within that 14 day period, the following paragraphs have effect:
              (a) the Secretary must revoke the transitional employer
                  determination;
             (b) the revocation comes into force on the day of the revocation;
              (c) to avoid doubt, subsection 108(5) of that Act (which deals
                  with giving notice of the revocation) applies in relation to the
                  revocation.

Table A

(8)    The Secretary may extend the 14 day period referred to in subitem (5)
       in relation to an employer. If the Secretary does so, subitems (6) and (7)
       have effect accordingly.
(9)    Despite paragraph (1)(a) and subitem (2) of this item, if the person’s
       child is born on or after 1 July 2011, then the following paragraphs have
       effect:
               (a) the Secretary may make an employer determination for the
                   person and the person’s employer under section 101 of the
                   Paid Parental Leave Act 2010, as that section applies apart
                   from this item;
               (b) if the Secretary does so and has previously made a
                   transitional employer determination for the person and the
                   employer, the Secretary is taken never to have made the
                   transitional employer determination.
(10)   The following provisions of the Paid Parental Leave Act 2010, apply in
       relation to this item as if it were a provision of that Act:
              (a) section 275 (which deals with how that Act applies to an
                   adopted child);
              (b) section 276 (which deals with how that Act applies to claims
                   made in exceptional circumstances).

2 Employer determination made where expected date of birth
    is on or after 1 July 2011 but child born before that date
(1)    This item applies if:
              (a) the Secretary makes an employer determination for an
                  employer and a person under the Paid Parental Leave Act
                  2010; and
              (b) the person’s claim is made before the day the child is born;
                  and
              (c) the expected date of birth of the child is on or after 1 July
                  2011; and
              (d) the child is born before 1 July 2011; and
              (e) the person’s employer has not made an election under
                  section 109 of that Act that applies to the person.

                                                                         Table A

(2)   If, after the employer determination is made, the Secretary makes a
      payability determination that parental leave pay is payable to the person
      for the child, the notice given to the employer under section 113 of that
      Act must:
              (a) state the day the child was born; and
              (b) be dated as at the date the preparation of the notice was
                   completed; and
              (c) contain a statement to the effect that the employer
                   determination will be revoked, unless the employer:
                     (i) agrees to being required to pay instalments to the
                         person, even though the child was born before 1 July
                         2011; and
                    (ii) gives the Secretary a written notice indicating that
                         agreement within 14 days of the date referred to in
                         paragraph (b).
(3)   If the employer does not give the notice referred to in
      subparagraph (2)(c)(ii) to the Secretary within that 14 day period, the
      following paragraphs have effect:
              (a) the Secretary must revoke the employer determination;
             (b) the revocation comes into force on the day of the revocation;
              (c) to avoid doubt, subsection 108(5) of that Act (which deals
                  with giving notice of the revocation) applies in relation to the
                  revocation;
             (d) section 103 of that Act (which deals with responding to a
                  notice of an employer determination) is taken to have never
                  applied in relation to the employer determination.
(4)   The following provisions of that Act apply in relation to this item as if it
      were a provision of that Act:
            (a) section 275 (which deals with how that Act applies to an
                adopted child);
            (b) section 276 (which deals with how that Act applies to claims
                made in exceptional circumstances).
