10.18.8.20 Outside Australia Rate - Agreement with Slovenia
Outside Australia rate
Article 9 of the Agreement with Slovenia allows for the rate of Australian benefit paid to a person living outside Australia to be calculated using the overall calculation process in SS(IntAgree)Act section 13. This means the person is paid a rate that is proportional to the amount of time they have resided in Australia during their working life.
Temporary return to Australia
People paid under the Agreement who reside in Slovenia and travel to Australia temporarily will continue to have their rate calculated using the outside Australia rate above for a period of 26 weeks or less. Once they have been in Australia for more than 26 weeks, their rate will be calculated using the inside Australia rate in 10.18.8.50.
