Will changes to deeming rates signal more income for Age Pensioner's?

The Department of Human Services (DHS) uses what’s called ‘means testing’ to calculate the rate of Age Pension entitlement and eligibility of Australians. In other words, the value of assets you own affects whether you can get an Age Pension and how much you can get. Your income can reduce your pension too. DHS applies the income and assets test to each pension applicant and adopts which ever test results in a lower pension entitlement payable. These tests are important to make sure the system is as fair as possible (easier said than done).
