Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
You have to be in Australia for 12 months before you apply for the pension. Once you are granted you cannot go overseas for 2 years and if you do then you will not receive it and have to apply again when you get back.
Here is some detailed information for you.
Once the 2 years is up you can travel and continue to get the pension but if you are away for more than 6 weeks you have to tell them.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
