Annual payments for carers

1 June 2018

From 1 July 2018, we’ll pay eligible carers the Carer Supplement and the Child Disability Assistance Payment.

You don’t need to contact us. If you’re eligible, we’ll pay these into your bank account by 31 July 2018.

If you don’t get the payments by then and think you’re eligible, check your Centrelink online account to:

  • see if we have issued the payment
  • confirm your registered bank account details are correct

Please only contact us after checking these details.

We’ll pay you a Carer Supplement of up to $600 for each eligible person in your care.

You may also get a Child Disability Assistance Payment of up to $1000 for each eligible child. 

We pay these annual payments to help you with the costs of caring for someone with a disability or medical condition.
