Technical update: Age pension, Aged care, FTB (Dolphin v3)

4 July 2024


The government recently published a number of new figures for the 2024/25 financial year that have been indexed upwards by CPI, which we have updated accordingly in Pathfinder. For future years, these figures will be indexed by our forecasted CPI.

Age pension

  • These figures include deeming rates, as well as income and asset tests thresholds for the government age pension, and have generally increased by 3-4% from the previous year.

  • This data can be found on the Services Australia website.

Family Tax Benefit

  • The figures relating to Family tax benefit part A and B include maximum supplement payments and income test thresholds, which have all increased by 4% to 4.5%.

  • This data can be found at the Family Assistance Guide website.
