    If a Newstart Allowance / Age Pension recipient marries a non-permanent resident, how will that affect his/her Newstart Allowance / Age Pension payment?

    The Centrelink client will be required to disclose their new marital status,
    and their entitlement will be re-calculated based on Joint Assets and Income Tests.

    And just to be clear (since this is often the back-story to a question of this kind),
    getting married to an Australian citizen (or to a P/R)
    does not in itself create any right for the foreigner to stay in Australia.

    What is the background to your question?
