Automatic rent assistance cancellation of pre-1 October 1997 residents


A data matching run conducted prior to 1 October 1997 identified those service pensioners and Income Support Supplement (ISS) recipients who received subsidised care and rent assistance.

Where DVA records for these income support pensioners confirmed that they were residing in an aged care facility (i.e. they have an appropriate residential situation recorded), their rent assistance was automatically cancelled with effect from payday 9 October 1997.
