10.18.7.10 Arrears of Slovenian Benefits

Arrears

When the grant of a Slovenian benefit includes an amount of arrears for a past period, any Australian income tested benefit received during the period the arrears covers will be reassessed. The Australian benefit is reassessed as if the arrears had been paid and received from the date of grant of the Slovenian benefit, or the date of grant of the Australian benefit, whichever is the later. This is done to determine whether the person has received a higher rate of Australian benefit than they were entitled to (10.1.8.10).
