18.104.22.168 Payments to third party organisations under income management
Payments to third party organisations (TPOs)
The delegate may make payments to eligible TPOs on behalf of people from their income managed funds. This payment may be through existing deduction arrangements or, where these do not exist, the delegate may make payments to TPOs through other methods of payment, such as electronic transfers, cheques, credit card payments and vouchers.
Payments may also be made so that a person can pay for goods or services from TPOs, typically for large purchases, such as furniture, or from specialist stores or stores that cannot be approved for BasicsCard because their main business is not the sale of priority goods.
