Reviews of circumstances and annual income
Each year we need to make sure you’re getting everything that you’re entitled to and that we’re paying you the right amount.
Review of circumstances
We need to get up-to-date information from you about your circumstances so we can check that you’re receiving the right payment.
You may be sent a Confirming your Circumstances form if you’re receiving:
- Supported Living Payment
- Emergency Maintenance Allowance
- Emergency Benefit
- New Zealand Superannuation or Veteran’s Pension.
Our review of circumstances takes place six months after one of these payments begins. The review is then repeated every 52 weeks.
This is a complete review of your entitlements. We need to make sure you’re still entitled to the payments you’re receiving from us. This includes supplementary assistance and checks for any changes in your circumstances.
