9.3.4 Wholly Dependent Partners (WDPs) and Eligible Young Persons (EYPs)

In the case of Wholly Dependent Partners (WDP) of deceased members, the MRCA Supplement replaced TA.  PA ceased being paid as a separate allowance.  Instead, a $6.00 fortnightly amount (in lieu of PA) will be “rolled” into their ongoing periodic payments or lump sum commutation amount.

WDPs who elected to receive a lump sum payment prior to 20 September 2009 will continue to receive the MRCA Supplement (high rate) of $12.00 per fortnight, provided they are not receiving an equivalent allowance under the VEA or the SSA.

EYPs continue to receive MRCA Supplement (low rate), in lieu of PA.
