10.22.6 Requirement to Claim a Benefit from Korea

Requirement to claim a benefit from Korea

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