10.14.8.20 Outside Australia - Agreement with Germany
Outside Australia rate
Article 8 of the Agreement with Germany provides that the rate of Australian benefit (other than double orphan pension) paid to a person living outside Australia be calculated using the overall calculation process in SS(IntAgree)Act section 13. This means that the person is paid a rate that is proportional to the amount of time they have resided in Australia during their working life.
The proportionalisation of income discussed in 10.14.8.40 applies to the outside Australia rate.
The ceiling rate discussed in 10.1.9.20 applies to people being paid under this Agreement.
