10.32.7.10 Arrears of Indian Benefits
When the grant of an Indian benefit includes arrears for a past period, any Australian income tested benefit received during the same period may need to be re-assessed. The Australian pension is re-assessed as if the arrears had been paid and received from the grant of the Indian benefit, or the date of grant of Australian benefit, whichever is the later. This determines whether the person has received more Australian benefit than their correct entitlement. See 10.1.8.10.
