The abatement threshold for Veteran’s Pension is increasing

From 1 April 2021, abatement thresholds will increase. You may be able to earn more without affecting your pension if:

  • you have included your non-qualifying partner in your Veteran’s Pension, or
  • you’re a recipient of Veteran’s Pension (under 65)

You don’t need to do anything differently

Any changes to your pension from 1 April will be calculated automatically.

For details on the thresholds that apply to you, visit the Work and Income website.
