How to manage your allowance
Your options and obligations for Partner Allowance.
These can include telling us:
- if your circumstances change
- you’re going overseas
- there’s a change to your income.
We need to know about changes that could reduce or stop your Partner Allowance.
To get your payment while outside Australia you must continue to meet the qualification rules for Partner Allowance.
How much you or your partner get paid affects your payment. We need to know what you both get paid so we can pay you the right amount.
If you get Partner Allowance and you’re Age Pension age, you can apply to transfer to Age Pension.
We have a range of other tools, information and services to help you manage your payment or get extra support.
