A person may be subject to income management under the Child Protection Measure if, at the test time either the person or the person's partner is an eligible recipient of a category H welfare payment.
Category I welfare payments (which includes category H welfare payments) are income managed under the Child Protection Measure:
SS(Admin)Act section 123TK provides that a person is an 'eligible recipient' of a relevant welfare payment beginning on the start day for the payment and ending when the payment is cancelled. This means that even if the trigger welfare payment is suspended or reduced to a 'zero rate' for a period, the person is an eligible recipient during that period.
