6.4.4 Cessation of Incapacity Payments at Age 65

Last amended: 10 October 2013

 

Section 120 provides that weekly incapacity compensation is not payable under section 118 to a person who has reached Age Pension Age.

 

However, incapacity payments may continue past Age Pension Age where the person was injured after reaching the age of 2 years before Age Pension Age.  In these circumstances, section 121 provides that incapacity compensation may be paid for a maximum of 104 weeks (whether consecutive or not) after injury.

 

Note:  Other forms of compensation (e.g. medical expenses, permanent impairment, household care) still continue to be payable after Age Pension Age.
