14.1 Liability Continues Until Ceased by Determination


Where liability has been conceded for a particular injury or disease, etc. that liability is not time limited, i.e. it does NOT end automatically.


Nevertheless, some benefits i.e. incapacity payments are not payable after Age Pension age.


Overall liability – i.e. to pay all compensation entitlements which may become payable from time to time – continues unless there are significant and compelling reasons to reverse the original determination, on the evidence the delegate had at the time of making the original decision.




Age Pension Age refers to pension age as defined under the Social Security Act 1991, that is, pension age for people other than veterans.
