How much you can get
The amount of Partner Allowance you can get depends on your circumstances.
This includes all of the following:
- your income and assets
- other payments you or your partner get
- your living arrangements and personal circumstances
- your tax exemptions.
Living or travelling overseas can also affect your payment.
The highest rate you can get is $510.80 a fortnight. You need to report your income to us every fortnight if it changes.
We’ll review your circumstances every 6 months to see if you can keep getting Partner Allowance.
We update Partner Allowance rates on 20 March and 20 September each year.
If you disagree with a decision we make, you can appeal.
