Technical update (Australian Government Payments 20 September 2019)

2 October 2019

On 20 September 2019, the Australian government released “A guide to Australian government payments 20 September 2019”, so the following have been updated in Optimo Pathfinder from the 2019/20 financial year:

  • Family tax benefit (FTB-A and FTB-B) payment rates and income limits
  • Age Pension rates and threshholds

This change will apply to all results in all cases that are solved on or after 1 October 2019 (irrespective of the case creation date).  If your scenario was solved before 1 October 2019, you can update your results by clicking 'Start solve' again.  It is recommended that you re-solve all scenarios in active cases so your results are consistent (for more information, see How to check when your results were created).
