4.12.2 Notification obligations for rent assistance (RA) recipients
188.8.131.52 — Section 98A in the Repat Act related to a pensioner's obligations to notify the Department of changes affecting their RA within a prescribed period. This section was not carried over by the Transitional Act, which meant that rent allowance (now rent assistance) overpayments could not be raised under the VEA unless or until a section 127 VEA notice was issued. This oversight was rectified in the Veterans' Affairs Legislation Amendment Act 1987, by continuing the person's obligation under section 98A in the Repat Act until such time as they were issued with a section 127 VEA notice. DI B14/87 refers.
