11.6.1.30 Mutual Exclusivity of Disengaged Youth & Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measures

Mutual exclusivity of measures

The Disengaged Youth and Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measures are mutually exclusive due to the different age requirements. However, it is possible for a person who has been income managed under the Disengaged Youth Measure to become income managed under the Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measure upon turning 25.

Example 1: Akmal is 24 and is income managed under the Disengaged Youth Measure. On his 25th birthday, Akmal has been in receipt of NSA for more than 52 weeks during the previous 104 week period. Akmal is now income managed under the Long-term Welfare Payment Recipient Measure.

Example 2: Robyn is 24 and is income managed under the Disengaged Youth Measure. On her 25th birthday, Robyn has been in receipt of NSA for 28 weeks during the previous 104 week period. Therefore, Robyn will not be income managed under the Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measure. Robyn will exit income management.

Delegate to inform person of change at allocation interview

If a person who is income managed under the Disengaged Youth Measure and, upon turning 25 years old, continues to be income managed under the Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measure, the delegate should discuss this change at the next allocation interview with the person immediately after the change. The delegate will inform the income managed person of this change in writing.
