Pensioner Education Supplement while travelling outside Australia

If you leave Australia to live in another country, your Pensioner Education Supplement will stop on departure.

Provided you continue to be paid your main payment such as Disability Support Pension or Carer Payment, and you continue studying for instance during holidays or semester breaks, you will continue to receive your Pensioner Education Supplement for up to 6 weeks outside Australia.

You may be able to be paid for more than 6 weeks if you are studying outside Australia as part of a full time Australian course.
