My parents are 80 years old and just started getting the pension. Before this they lived on credit.
Can they get back paid as they are in a lot of debt?

Hi @Viki,

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

If you want to know if the age pension your parents are receiving can be backdated, they will need to contact Centrelink to discuss their situation in more detail as they administer the payments.

 

Thanks, JodieH.
