10.7.8.20 Outside Australia Rate - Agreement with Malta
Outside Australia rate
Article 8 of the Agreement with Malta allows for the rate of Australian benefit paid to a person 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 (10.1.9.20).
The ceiling rate discussed in 10.1.9.20 applies to people being paid under this Agreement.
