COMPUTER MATCHING - ALL AGENCY IDENTITIES/PROFILES

Introduction

The purpose of this instruction is to explain the requirement  for, and method of, collecting statistical information about Pensioner Initiated cancellations after 21 August 1990.

Background

2.The Budget announcement relating to the collection of Tax File Numbers (TFNs) for the purpose of Computer Matching - All Agency Identities/Profiles may lead to requests from  some of our pensioners to cancel pension payments.

Recording Procedures

3.In order to keep track of any such cancellations and to enable follow up action where applicable, we have created an attribute on CMS using "Pensioner Request Cancel" - attribute number 605 for these cases.  From 22 August 1990 any request by a pensioner to cancel pension payments must be registered on CMS as PIR Classification type and the attribute "Pensioner Request Cancel" set in the Registration/Classification stage.  This is not a mandatory attribute but it is essential that this attribute is set for all pensioner initiated cancellations after 21 August 1990.

Contact Officer

4.The contact officer for inquiries on this matter at Central Office is Jeanette Ricketts, Income Support, phone 06 2896440.
