3 Principal regulations

These regulations amend the Social Security (Period of Income Assessment) Regulations 1996 (the principal regulations).

4 Schedule amended

In the Schedule, clause 1, item relating to jobseeker support (as that item is inserted by section 86 and Part 2 of Schedule 3 of the Social Security (Benefit Categories and Work Focus) Amendment Act 2013), replace “clause 1(ab) or (ba)” with “clause 1(ab), (ba), or (c)”.

Explanatory note

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

These regulations amend the Social Security (Period of Income Assessment) Regulations 1996, and come into force immediately after the commencement, on 15 July 2013, of section 86 and Part 2 of Schedule 3 of the Social Security (Benefit Categories and Work Focus) Amendment Act 2013.

The amendment relates to jobseeker support paid at the rate (for a single beneficiary with 1 or more dependent children) in clause 1(c) of Schedule 9 of the Social Security Act 1964.

The amendment ensures, for jobseeker support paid at that rate, that a person’s weekly income is determined under section 64(2A) of that Act by dividing by 52 the person’s total income over a 52-week period. However, the chief executive may, with the person’s agreement, instead determine that person’s income over the period of 1 week.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 13 June 2013.
