The Permanent Residential Aged Care request for a Combined Assets and Income Assessment
The Permanent Residential Aged Care request for a Combined Assets and Income Assessment form is one of the more formidable Centrelink forms. Not only does it need to capture details of a resident's assets and income, but also details of the former home (and who is living there), detail around the admission to an aged care facility and detail on who is able to liaise with Centrelink on the Resident's behalf.
At 28 pages, and with 146 separate (and numbered) sections, the form is substantial.
On page 26 is a list of 29 types of supporting documentation required to back up information in the form. In some cases, the document is required a number of times - such as bank account statements.
The form has to be comprehensive. This is because each Resident's situation is different. While a resident may not need to answer every question, the form will have all the questions need to get a full picture of the resident.
