Requirement to claim a benefit from Chile

The Agreement with Chile does not contain special provisions to make it compulsory for people claiming Australian benefits under the Agreement to also claim a benefit from Chile. However, all claimants under the Agreement are required to take reasonable action to claim any entitlement from Chile. This requirement is covered by the CFP legislation explained in 7.3.1.
