Cashless Debit Card

The Australian government is delivering payments in some areas using a Cashless Debit Card.

Who it affects


The Cashless Debit Card is currently in 2 areas:

  • Ceduna, South Australia
  • Kununurra and Wyndham in the East Kimberly region of Western Australia


If you live in a Cashless Debit Card area and are getting a working age payment, you will get a Cashless Debit Card.

How it works

A Cashless Debit Card looks and works like a normal bank debit card, except you can’t use it to buy alcohol, gamble, or get cash out.

You still get your full payment but it’s in 2 parts. Some goes to your normal bank account and the rest goes to your cashless debit card.
