How long does it take for unspent funds to be transferred?

The transfer of unspent funds between Home Care Package providers can take up to 70 days. The process involves your current provider notifying the government that you have departed their service. The government will then make the funds available to you through your new provider. The unspent funds cannot be transferred directly to you or to a family member, and as the unspent funds are held by the government, the transfer is initiated by Services Australia, not the providers.
