11.6.4.10 Reasons for Exit from the Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measure

Reasons for exit

There are 6 main circumstances in which a person may cease to be subject to income management under the Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measure. These may occur when:

  • the delegate grants an exemption to the person,
  • the person's category E welfare payment has been cancelled,
  • the person becomes subject to the Cape York, Child Protection, School Enrolment, School Attendance, or VWPR Measures,
  • an excluded payment nominee is appointed in relation to the person, or the person's existing payment nominee becomes an excluded payment nominee,
  • the person's usual place of residence is no longer in a declared income management area and 13 weeks has passed since they left the declared income management area, or
  • the person has died.
    • Note: Any income management balance remaining would be paid to the person's estate as a lump sum, regardless of the amount remaining.

Note: When a person moves immediately from the Disengaged Youth Measure to the Long-term Welfare Payment Recipients Measure, they are not considered to have exited income management.
