10.18.6 Requirement to Claim a Foreign Benefit - Agreement with Slovenia

Requirement to claim a benefit from Slovenia

The Agreement with Slovenia does not contain special provisions to make it compulsory for people claiming Australian benefits under the Agreement to also claim a benefit from Slovenia. However, all claimants for specified Australian benefits are required to take reasonable action to claim any entitlement from overseas, including Slovenia. See CFP legislation in 7.3.1.
