How to manage your payment
Your options and obligations for Age Pension.
You can normally get Age Pension while outside Australia. We base the amount we can pay you on how long you’re away.
You can have an authorised representative to deal with us on your behalf. You can authorise them to enquire, update, act or get payments for you.
How much you or your partner earn affects your payment. We need to know what you both earn so we can pay you the right amount.
We have a range of other tools, information and services to help you manage your payment or get extra support.
