Hi There

My father arrived in Australia back eight years ago with this visa. There is an assurance of support for the remaining 2 years.However He was back from 1974 to 1980 a permanent Australian resident and paid all his taxes. Does it mean he cannot get the age pension due to this assurance of support.

Or is this only for new migrants?
What are the exemptions? Also Does assurance of supports ends automatically once he becomes Australian Citizen?

The AoS lasts for 10 periods. The fact that he's become an Australian citizen doesn't change that.

"Once you give an assurance of support, you can't cancel it.

This is the rule even if:

your assuree becomes an Australian citizen
your relationship with them breaks down
you're in financial hardship

We may cancel the agreement if your assuree dies."
