The Protected Earnings Amount (PEA) is the amount of wage or salary that is exempt from child support deductions.
This is the minimum amount a worker must receive as net pay, that is, after the tax and child support has been deducted. It is calculated on the basis of 75% of the basic Newstart Allowance.
On January 1 each year, the Department of Human Services (DHS) Protected Earnings Amount (PEA) is adjusted to allow for increases in the cost of living. The PEA is a set minimum amount that must be left after tax and child support is deducted from a persons wage.
The new weekly rate for 2017 is $358.05.
PEA = Maximum fortnightly basic rate of Newstart Allowance x 0.75
