    Default Partner's skilled employment to claim point SMC

    Hi,

    I'm asking for a friend. She's planning to lodge for SMC application once INZ open the application. She will need to include her partner employment to add the point up. Her partner is working in level 4 ANZSCO with hourly salary below the median wage. Please advise if she can claim the point for that. Thanks

    Regards,
    Tia
