11.9.2 Eligibility for Income Management under the SPAR Measure

Introduction

A person is subject to the SPAR Measure under SS(Admin)Act section 123UFAA if, at a point in time:

  • the person or their partner is an eligible recipient of a trigger payment (11.1.1.50), and
  • the person does not have an excluded Part 3B payment nominee, and
  • the person is not subject to income management under SS(Admin)Act section 123UC, 123UF (under the Child Protection or Cape York Measure), and
  • a written notice requiring that the person be subject to income management, under SS(Admin)Act section 123UFAA has been given to the delegate by a officer or employee of a recognised state/territory authority (see 11.9.3.10) (and has not been withdrawn or revoked), and
  • the state or territory is a recognised state or territory.

A person will also be subject to income management under SPAR if they have a Part 3B payment nominee who is subject to SPAR, and the person is not subject to an income management measure in their own right. The principal does not have to meet any of the eligibility criteria to be income managed under this measure other than to have a current Part 3B payment nominee who is being income managed under SPAR. If the person was on VIM prior to their nominee being placed on SPAR, the person can remain on VIM.
