Social Security Pensions (Home Responsibilities) Amendment Regulations 2003 come into force

Implementation date: 1 September 2003

The Regulations provide that home responsibilities protection shall be available to a person who is to be taken to have been precluded from regular employment by responsibilities at home in respect of the year 2003-04 and any subsequent year throughout which he was an approved foster parent. Each year of home responsibilities protection is deducted from the total number of years for which the contribution conditions for basic retirement pension have to be met.
