      Hi Patricia,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Are you referring to the increase in Age Pension? If so, there’s no announcement yet from the Department of Social Services (DSS) as to when will be the next increase in pension payments. The latest increase at the moment was made on 20 March 2017 and this will be until 19 September 2017. If you’d like to get more updates regarding the increase, please contact Centrelink or Department of Social Services directly.
