How to manage your payment
Your options and obligations for Widow Allowance.
We need to know about changes that could reduce or stop your Widow Allowance payment.
There are rules about when you can get Widow Allowance when you travel outside Australia.
Some people can get income support payments paid each week instead of each fortnight.
You may get part of your income support payment or Family Tax Benefit (Part A) early. This is an advance payment. You pay it back later out of your payments from us.
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 Widow Allowance and you’re Age Pension age, you can apply to transfer to Age Pension.
We have a range of other services and information to help you manage your payment or get extra support.
