1.1.I.110 Interim reconciliation


For the purposes of FA, interim reconciliation is the process whereby a separated individual's estimated ATI and maintenance income (1.1.M.10) is reconciled against their actual ATI (1.1.A.20) and actual maintenance income before the actual ATI and actual maintenance income of their ex-partner is available.

This process may be undertaken where an individual separated from a partner during the relevant income year (1.1.R.23).

Note: Centrelink may also use the term 'interim reconciliation' to describe a situation where an individual's FTB entitlement is reconciled pending actual ATI information for their partner.
