*Each eligible member of a couple

For couples living apart (e.g. due to illness) each pensioner gets the single person’s rate.

Note 1
If the rate of payment is reduced once the means tests have been applied and the pensioner is eligible to receive some income support payment, they receive at least the minimum amount of the Pension Supplement.

Note 2
The basic amount of the Pension Supplement is taxable, if an income support payment is taxable, otherwise it is tax free.  The remaining amount is always tax free.

Refer to the links below for more information on the Pension Supplement.
