Rents are index linked to the pension. Rents are calculated on only 78% of the pension payment plus government rental assistance. You retain the balance of the pension plus all of the supplement payments. With each pension increase (20 March and 20 September) rents will be recalculated to remain at 78% and residents will be advised of the new amount.
