SOCIAL SECURITY ACT 1991 - SECT 1206M

The final advance payment deduction

Final advance payment deduction not to exceed unpaid amount

             (1)  If an advance payment deduction that would otherwise be deducted from a person's rate exceeds the part of the advance payment that the person has not yet repaid (by previous deductions under this Part or otherwise), the amount of that advance payment deduction equals the part that the person has not yet repaid.

Example:   

Facts:              Assume that, in the example at the end of section 1206J, Anne has requested that the advance payment deduction be the larger amount of $55 (see section 1206K), so that the advance payment of $450 will be repaid sooner.

Application:    If $55 is deducted from Anne's fortnightly rate of benefit, $440 will have been repaid after 8 successive fortnights, leaving $10 unpaid. Under section 1206M, the final advance payment deduction will be $10.

This section subject to section 1206N

             (2)  This section has effect subject to section 1206N.
