Australian working life residence - Agreement with the Republic of North Macedonia

Australian working life residence

Article 1 of the Agreement defines period of Australian working life residence as that defined in Australian legislation, but does not include periods deemed to be AWLR by virtue of Article 11 of the Agreement. This means that the definition in SS(IntAgree)Act sections 15 to 22 applies when calculating the rate of pension payable. AWLR is the period during which they were Australian residents between turning 16 and reaching age pension age.

Act reference: SS(IntAgree)Act Schedule 26 Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, section 15 Working life
