Disclosure of information


Despite any law (whether written or unwritten) in force in Queensland, the Family Responsibilities Commission (FRC) (Queensland Commission) may give the Secretary information about a person if that information is relevant to the operation of the enhanced income management regime and either:

  • the person is subject to the enhanced income management regime under SS(Admin)Act section 123SC, or
  • the FRC is considering whether to give a notice requiring the person to become subject to the enhanced income management regime.

If the FRC discloses information about a person in the above circumstances, the Secretary may also disclose information about the person to the FRC for the purpose of the performance of its functions or the exercise of its powers.

If a person ceases to receive an eligible welfare payment while their notice remains in force, the Secretary must advise the FRC as soon as practicable about the cancellation of the relevant payment.
