The Rudd Government will again be asked to review its stance on changes to same-sex pensions.

ACON has joined six other health and welfare organisations to form a lobby group seeking a grandfather clause in the welfare changes.

The group includes the National GLBT Health Alliance, NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, the Welfare Rights Centre, People With Disability Australia, Positive Life NSW and the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations.

The Coalition is seeking a 12-month grace period for anyone under 55 years of age currently receiving benefits and anyone aged over 55 on welfare should be exempt from future changes.
