Daily Accommodation Contribution DAC

What is the Daily Accommodation Contribution?

  • The Daily Accommodation Contribution is a rental style payment for accommodation costs at the aged care home.

When is the Daily Accommodation Contribution applied?

  • If the Commonwealth will partially support the residents accommodation costs the the DAC calculated by the Commonwealth will be payable. The amount you pay is a daily rate.
  • You can pay DAC instalments up to a month in advance, as agreed with your aged care home.
  • Daily accommodation contributions, unless you have paid in advance, are not refundable if you leave the aged care home.
  • If a resident chooses to pay some of the accommodation payment as a lump sum (RAC), then this will reduce the rental DAC payment.
