An Age Pensioner has been successful in claiming back substantial pension reductions after Centrelink incorrectly assessed an inheritance received by them. Meridian Lawyers say Centrelink is likely to have done this to many other pensioners over the past 15 years.

If your pension has been reduced as a result of receiving a benefit under a Will or testamentary estate, you may want to contact Meridian Lawyers, who are planning a class action to recover similar incorrect pension reductions. Meridian can be contacted on (02) 9018 9978 or by email .
