Direct Deduction System/DDS

The Direct Deduction System (DDS) is a sub-system of the VIEW system. It enables the following actions to be performed:

  • create a new payment destination for direct credit, group and cheque payments,
  • change the payment destination,
  • set up a deduction to the ATO,
  • add an instruction to direct a nominated amount to a second destination,
  • change destinations from default to non-default and vice versa.

DDS will allow for the integration of the State Housing Authority deductions when they become available in the future.

A person's payment destination is where their DVA payment will be sent. This most commonly is by direct credit to an account with a financial institution. However, the pensioner may apply for exemption from direct credit and subject to approval, the payment destination may be an individual cheque payment. A pensioner may nominate a payment destination of a group payment, such as an aged care facility, which must also be appointed as an agent.
