This is untrue, the proposed legislation introduces changes to the Australian Working Life Residency rules which dictates the amount of pension received is based on the working life years spent in Australia as a percentage.
eg: Some one who worked 21 years in Australia would receive 21/35 (or 60%) of the pension after 6 weeks (down from 26 weeks) overseas.
Many thousands of Age pensioners currently permanently overseas would not be effected.
