1.6.1 Dual entitlement – member's partner is also a member
Example: A member is eligible for disturbance allowance under Chapter 6 Part 1 Division 1. Their partner is an APS employee in Defence. The member's eligibility for the allowance is reduced by any amount the partner gets for similar purposes under Defence Enterprise Agreement 2017-2020 section H2, Relocating with Defence.
1.6.1A Payment of contributions by another person
1.6.2 Payment of benefit to another person
Example: A member who is deployed has to pay rent at home. They may choose to have their rent allowance paid to their partner, who will arrange the rent payments on their behalf.
1.6.3 Payment of amount to a person under legal disability
Example: A member who is seriously injured and unable to act on their own behalf.
1.6.4 Payment of amounts on death of a member
1.6.5 Effect of death on eligibility for salary and allowances
Example: A member was deployed on overseas service on 31 August 2020.
The member was reported missing, presumed dead, on 30 June 2021 but was later found alive on 30 April 2022.
For the 10 months when the member was missing, presumed dead (30 June 2021 – 30 April 2022), they would not normally be entitled to payment of salary as their continuous full-time service was taken to have ceased. But because the member was later found, they were considered to be on continuous full-time service for that period and therefore entitled to salary.
