6.7.3 PI Payments are not subject to clearance with Centrelink


It should be noted that while S115 of the SRCA and S74 of the VEA operate to prevent double payment of compensation in respect of the same injury, no similar provisions exist in the SRCA to prevent payments both under Ss24, 25 and 27 of the SRCA and the Social Security Act 1991. For this reason, PI payments do not need to be cleared with Centrelink.
