Who can get it
You must meet eligibility requirements to get the Work Bonus.
You can get the Work Bonus if all of these apply to you. You:
- are over Age Pension age
- get a pension that’s not the Parenting Payment single
- aren’t getting the transitional rate of pension
- have income from employment or active participation in self-employment.
You don’t need to apply for the Work Bonus.
We’ll apply the Work Bonus to your income if you meet all the eligibility requirements. All you need to do is declare your income.
The Work Bonus reduces the amount of employment income or eligible self-employment income that we applied to your rate of pension entitlement under the income test.
