Implementing the initiative "Changing the Income Assessment Model"

Implementation year

Changing the Social Security Income Assessment Model (CAM) was announced in the 2019–20 Budget as part of the Social Security and other Amendments (Simplifying Income Reporting and Other Measures) Bill 2020. Legislative amendments were enacted to allow customers to report the gross employment income paid to them during their reporting period, as shown on their payslip, rather than calculating what they expect to earn. The changes were successfully implemented on 7 December 2020.
