Living Alone Payment

This Regulatory Impact Statement provides background information in support of the proposal to:

  • replace the supplementary benefit known as the Living Alone Payment (LAP) and current two rates of New Zealand Superannuation and Veteran’s Pension (NZS/VP) with a Single Sharing Accommodation rate and a Single Living Alone rate of NZS/VP
  • align the definition of “dependent child” in the New Zealand Superannuation and Retirement Income Act 2001 and Part 6 of the War Pensions Act 1954, with the definition in the Social Security Act 1964.
