Protecting Pensioners

July 01, 2017

The last Labor Government  delivered the biggest increase to the pension in Australia’s history.

The Abbott/Turnbull Government has proposed a range of cuts to the pension which Labor opposes, including changes to the pension asset test that came in to effect in 2017. So far, Labor in Opposition has prevented the Government’s plan to change indexation arrangements, remove the energy supplement and increase in the pension age to 70, all of which would have a negative impact on older Australians.
