11.1.11.90 Disbursing an income management balance where income management has been applied incorrectly

Disbursing an income management balance where income management has been applied incorrectly

Where income management has been applied in error (i.e. the conditions in SS(Admin)Act sections 123UB, 123UC, 123UCA, 123UCB, 123UCC, 123UD, 123UE, 123UF or 123UFA are not satisfied in relation to the person and the person should not be subject to income management), and a person has accumulated funds in their income management account, these funds can be paid directly to the person as a lump sum payment, upon identification of the error.

Example: Jordan commences income management on 4 November 2008. A review of Jordan's circumstances was conducted on 4 December 2008, and it was determined that Jordan should not have been subject to income management.

As at 4 December 2008, Jordan had $304 left in his income management account. This amount will be paid into Jordan's bank account as a single lump sum payment.
