Carers, your annual payments are coming

If you get Carer Supplement or Child Disability Assistance Payment, there is no need to contact us as your payment for 2016 is on its way.

We'll pay Carer Supplement and Child Disability Assistance Payment with your regular payment in July if you’re eligible.

Carer Supplement is up to $600 for each eligible person in your care.

Child Disability Assistance Payment is up to $1000 for each eligible child in your care.

The best part is you don’t need to do anything. The payments happen automatically if you’re eligible. If you don’t receive the payment in your bank account by 31 July 2016, check to see if the payment has been issued and that your bank account details are correct. You can verify if the payment has been issued and check your bank account details on your Centrelink account through myGov or by using the Express Plus Centrelink mobile app.

The annual payments help with the costs of caring for someone with disability or medical conditions.
