10.12.6 Requirement to Claim a Benefit from Cyprus

Requirement to claim a benefit from Cyprus

Article 14 of the Agreement with Cyprus contains provisions that make it compulsory for claimants of Australian benefits under the Agreement to also claim any outstanding Cypriot benefit that they may also be entitled to.

This provision has been superseded by CFP legislation that makes it compulsory for all claimants of Australian benefits to take reasonable action to claim any entitlement from Cyprus.
