Repealing Section 70 of the Social Security Act 2018.
We believe this law adversely affects those in a permanent relationship with a person who has an overseas pension; that a couple is not treated as individuals but as an 'economic unit', with the New Zealander then finding they lose most, if not all, of their superannuation which is an 'individual entitlement'. This form of means testing can cause not just a monetary loss but a loss of independence. This puts a strain on relationships and affects people's emotional and physical health.
