11.2.5 Payments subject to income management under the Cape York initiative

Introduction

SS(Admin)Act section 123XM and section 123XN provide that, if a person is subject to income management under section 123UF(1) (an eligible recipient of a category P welfare payment in Cape York), a deduction must be made from a category Q welfare payment (11.2.5.30). Similarly, section 123XO and section 123XP provide that, if a person is subject to income management under section 123UF(2) (an eligible recipient of a category R welfare payment (11.2.5.20), a deduction must be made from a category S welfare payment (11.2.5.40).

For category P welfare payment (11.2.5.10) recipients, both their category P welfare payments, and other various payments, are included in the definition of a category Q welfare payment, and therefore may be subject to income management.

For a recipient of a category R welfare payment, their category R welfare payments are not included in the definition of category S welfare payment, and will therefore not be subject to income management. A number of other payments included in the definition of category S welfare payment will be subject to income management.
