New income test for Carer Allowance

Did you know that from 20 September 2018, carers need to meet an income test to get Carer Allowance?

An income test has been implemented and those who have an adjusted taxable income of over $250,000 a year may no longer be eligible for Carer Allowance, or
a Carer Allowance Health Care Card. Have a look at the Department of Human Services Website for more information.
