An additional $150/fortnight/couple
One Nation proposes to increase, the maximum basic couple pension payment by $150 per fortnight, with a flow through to the single aged pension and the disability support pension, the carer payment and service pensions.
The cost of this proposal according to the Parliamentary Budget Office would be about 10 billion dollars a year and involve a one-off increase in the Male Total Average Weekly Earnings benchmarking percentage, which forms part of the pension indexation arrangements.
