Payments from another country
Australia has agreements with a number of countries to share responsibility for social security payments.
If you get Widow Allowance and we think you may get a pension or other payment from another country, we may ask you to either:
- apply for that payment
- show why you wouldn’t get it.
We can help you apply for a payment from another country. Read more about International Social Security Agreements.
