The dual purpose of this paper is:
• to provide a context for the Patten administration's latest, and perhaps its last, aged income-support system reform prescription in terms of possible policy goals, the broad spectrum of income support strategies available, and the internationally-recognised minimum standards for social security programs; and
• to set out a specific program design agenda related to program coverage, withdrawal contingencies, program financing and program administration that the Patten administration needs to address when developing its latest proposed aged income-support program.
