Eligibility for Mobility Allowance
To be eligible for Mobility Allowance, you must:
- be 16 years or older
- meet residence requirements
- be unable to use public transport without substantial assistance because of a disability, illness, or injury
- provide a medical report from your doctor confirming you cannot use public transport
- travel to and from home for paid work, voluntary work, study or training, or to look for work
If there is no public transport where you live, you may still qualify for Mobility Allowance. Voluntary work must be for a charitable, welfare or community organisation. Study or training can include secondary school, tertiary studies, trade and vocational courses.
