All non-supported residents who have assets above the current partially supported cut off level will be required to pay either a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or combination of lump sum refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) and the balance of the RAD as an equivalent Daily Payment (DAP). The pricing listed below is the maximum pricing for the category of the room and may vary depending on your individual circumstances.
To calculate the equivalent daily payment, the refundable accommodation deposit is multiplied by the current maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR)* and divided by 365 days.
For example, a refundable deposit of $550,000 would have an equivalent daily payment of:
i.e. ($550,000 x 5.70%) / 365 = $85.89 per day
Optional Services Provided at an Additional Cost
Optional Services of your choice are available via our You Choose Optional extras Program. Please enquire for more information.
