Assumptions

Deeming is a key consideration in the Age Pension income test. When using this deeming calculator, it is assumed that you are an Australian resident and you are age-eligible.

Deemed income from your investment assets is calculated by multiplying the asset value by the applicable deeming rates.

Deeming rates are set by the Federal Government.

The deeming rates and thresholds effective at 1 July 2023 are:

  • Singles - 0.25% on the first $56,400 of your total investment assets and 2.25% on your assets over $56,400.
  • Couples - 0.25% on the first $93,600 of your total investment assets and 2.25% on your assets over $93,600.

Assets subject to deeming include:

  • Superannuation assets.
  • Savings accounts, cash and term deposits.
  • Shares.
  • Managed investments such as managed funds and insurance bonds.
  • Debentures (money owed to you).
  • Gold, silver or platinum bullion.

Assets not subject to deeming include:

  • Your home.
  • Home contents.
  • Investment properties.
  • Cars, boats and caravans.

This calculator does not allow for the 24 month assets test exemption for principal home sale proceeds.
