The Disability Support Pension (DSP) is a fortnightly Centrelink payment for people who – due to a permanent physical, intellectual or psychiatric disability – are unable to work.
The eligibility rules for the DSP are complex. That is, to be eligible for the DSP, you must meet a range of medical (evidence of disability) and non-medical (age, residency, income and assets) criteria.
The DSP is a form of income support for people with permanent disability.
Persons in receipt of the DSP, may also be eligible for other types of Centrelink payments, such as the Mobility Allowance and Rent Assistance, to help them meet the expenses of everyday living.
Carer Payment is a regular payment to a person who gives constant care to a child or adult with a disability or a medical condition, or to an adult who is frail aged.
