Good afternoon Rodney,
I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
I did a bit of research for you---actually I just got off the phone with the Australian Consulate in Washington DC. In order to apply for your Australian old age pension you need to contact Centrelink. This is the government agency that will get your pension started. You can reach them toll free from the US at 1-***-***-****.
Additionally, you can reach their website at this link:
If you are expecting a coordination of benefits---which is what you would expect if you are already receiving US social security, then you would need to contact your local social security office in your city or a city nearby to you.
