If you don’t get a means tested income support payment
If you don’t get a means tested income support payment from us or Department of Veterans' Affairs, you’ll need to tell us your details.
Once we have your details we can complete your assessment.
We won’t have your details if you are selffunded retiree. We also won’t have all the details we need if you get 1 of the following payments:
- Age Pension (Blind)
- Disability Support Pension (Blind)
- Carer Allowance, Mobility Allowance
- Disability Support Pension or War Widow’s Pension without the Income Support Supplement.
Tell us your details using the Aged Care Calculation of your cost of care (SA486) form.
Complete the form and send it to us with your supporting documents. We can then complete your assessment.
We’ll write to you when we finish your assessment. We’ll let you know how much you need to pay towards your care.
