If workers who are entitled to weekly payments receive a disability, retirement or superannuation pension and where the pension relates to the retirement, cessation or termination from employment in which the injury arose or occurred, the pension is deducted from the workers weekly payment amount.
Workers are required to give notice to the Agent in writing within 14 days of first receiving pension and advise the Agent of:
- the nature of the pension
- the source of the pension and
- the amount of the pension.
If there is any change in the pension amount the worker receives, the worker is required to give notice to the Agent in writing within 14 days of becoming aware of the change.
An employer must give notice in writing to the Agent within 28 days of becoming aware that the worker is or may be entitled to a pension.
