Payment of pension

Pensions are paid every second Thursday.  If you move overseas permanently, your DVA payments may be made every four weeks into your bank account in your country of residence.

Your pension may be paid:

  • directly into your bank, building society or credit union account-
  • directly to an aged care home or hospital
  • to another person nominated by you
  • to a trustee
  • to two separate accounts.
