SOCIAL SECURITY ACT 1991 - SECT 1188E

Entitlement to Supplement between 20 March 1999 and 19 March 2000: people not covered by section 1188D

             (1)  This section applies in respect of:

                     (a)  payment periods beginning on or after 20 March 1999 and not later than 19 March 2000; or

                     (b)  pension paydays occurring on or after 20 March 1999 and not later than 19 March 2000.

             (2)  This section applies to a person in respect of a payment period (the relevant payment period ) or in respect of a pension payday (the relevant pension payday ) if the person meets the requirements of subsections (3) and (4).

             (3)  The requirements of this subsection are:

                     (a)  that the person is a CDEP Scheme participant in respect of the relevant payment period or the relevant pension payday; and

                     (b)  that a CDEP Scheme payment was payable to the person:

                              (i)  in respect of a payment period the whole or a part of which occurred within the 3 payment periods immediately before the relevant payment period; or

                             (ii)  in respect of the 3 pension paydays immediately before the relevant pension payday.

             (4)  The requirement of this subsection is that the person satisfies the CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement income test in respect of the relevant payment period, or in respect of the payment period in which the relevant pension payday occurs, as mentioned in subsection (5) or (6), as the case requires.

             (5)  This is how to work out whether a person who is not a member of a couple satisfies the CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement income test in respect of a payment period.

Method statement

Step 1.    If Benefit Rate Calculator B does not apply to the person, assume that it applies.

Step 2.    Work out the total amount of any CDEP Scheme payments payable to the person in respect of the period.

Step 3.    Assume that the person's ordinary income worked out on a fortnightly basis is increased by that total amount.

Step 4.    Assume that the person's maximum basic rate is the sum of:

               (a)     the amount specified in column 3B of item 4A of Table B in point 1068-B1; and

              (b)     the amount specified in column 4 of item 1 of Table F in point 1068-F15.

Step 5.    Work out the person's provisional payment rate for the period under Benefit Rate Calculator B on the assumptions referred to in Steps 3 and 4.

Step 6.    The person satisfies the CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement income test in respect of the period if the person's provisional payment rate worked out under Step 5 is greater than zero.

             (6)  This is how to work out whether a person who is a member of a couple satisfies the CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement income test in respect of a payment period.

Method statement

Step 1.    If Benefit Rate Calculator B does not apply to the person, assume that it applies.

Step 2.    Work out the total amount of any CDEP Scheme payments payable to the person in respect of the period.

Step 3.    Assume that the person's ordinary income worked out on a fortnightly basis is increased by that total amount.

Step 4.    Work out the total amount of any CDEP Scheme payments payable to the person's partner in respect of the period.

Step 5.    Assume that the person's partner's ordinary income worked out on a fortnightly basis is increased by the total amount worked out under Step 4.

Step 6.    Assume that the person's maximum basic rate is the sum of:

               (a)     the amount specified in column 3B of item 7 of Table B in point 1068-B1; and

              (b)     the amount specified in column 4 of item 2 of Table F in point 1068-F15.

Step 7.    Work out the person's provisional payment rate for the period under Benefit Rate Calculator B on the assumptions referred to in Steps 3, 5 and 6.

Step 8.    The person satisfies the CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement income test in respect of the period if the person's provisional payment rate worked out under Step 7 is greater than zero.

             (7)  If this section applies to the person in respect of the relevant payment period or the relevant pension payday then, subject to subsections (8) and (9), a CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement of $20 is payable to the person in respect of that period or payday.

             (8)  A CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement is not payable to a person under subsection (7) if:

                     (a)  the Secretary has made a request of the person in respect of the tax file number of the person or of his or her partner; and

                     (b)  the person has failed to satisfy the request; and

                     (c)  the Secretary has not exempted the person from having to satisfy the request.

Note 1:       CDEP Scheme participant see subsection 23(1).

Note 2:       For CDEP Scheme payment see subsection 23(1).

             (9)  A person cannot receive more than one payment of CDEP Scheme Participant Supplement in respect of a fortnightly period.
