Understanding pensions

The Age Pension is a support payment from the Federal Government that you can access once you reach the pension age and if your income and/or assets are under the applicable limits. Depending on your circumstances you may be able to access a full pension or a part pension.

You can receive the age pension straight away once you reach the required age or can hold off until after your superannuation is under the applicable income and asset limits.

A financial adviser will be able to explain how you can access your pension and any impact it has on accessing aged care services.
