Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2007, amend the definition of income-from-assets exemption in clause 5 of Schedule 27 of the Social Security Act 1964. In accordance with Part 3 of Schedule 27, a certain amount of a person's annual income that is derived from assets (the income-from-assets exemption) is not included in the calculation of the person's overall annual income for the purpose of the means assessment relating to income. The amount of the income-from-assets exemption is increased—

  • from $805 to $826, if the person is single:

  • from $1,610 to $1,651, if the person's spouse or partner is a resident assessed as requiring care:

  • from $2,415 to $2,477, if the person's spouse or partner is not a resident assessed as requiring care.

These increases reflect a 2.54% increase in the All Groups index number of the New Zealand Consumers Price Index for the previous year.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 31 May 2007.
