Age Component Amount

An age component amount is used for varying ages to set a loan limit as a percentage of the secured assets. The age component amount is intended to take into account the risk of debt exposure of the Commonwealth by reference to a person's current age.  Its aim is to ensure that sufficient real assets are available to repay the loan at the time of recovery.


A person's age for the purpose of the table is his or her age at his or her last birthday.  In the case of a couple, it is the age of the younger member of the couple on his or her last birthday. Refer to subsection 52ZCA of the VEA for a full definition. The Age Component Amount table is found in the Social Security (Pension Loans Scheme – Age Component Amount) Determination 2019.
