Information Sources


Old age pensions were paid by the Queensland Government from July 1908 when the "Old Age Pensions Act of 1908", 8 Edw VII no.6, came into force. In July 1909 the Commonwealth Government began paying old age pensions and payments by the state government appear to have ceased about June 1909. Each entry in the register gives the number and the date of the claim, the name and age of the claimant, the number of years resident in Queensland and the present place of residence, the Commissioner's recommendation as to whether the claim should be allowed or rejected and suggested rate of payment, the minister's decision on the claim, the number of the pension certificate and the office from which the pension was to be paid.
