10.9.6 Requirement to Claim a Foreign Benefit - Agreement with Ireland

Requirement to claim a benefit from Ireland

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