Are you younger than 35, getting DSP and able to work?

25 March 2019

You may have to do activities to help you find and keep work.

You may have participation requirements if you get Disability Support Pension and:

  • you’re younger than 35
  • you can work 8 or more hours a week
  • you don’t have a dependent child who’s younger than 6.

What are participation requirements?

These are activities to help you prepare and look for jobs. You’ll need to attend regular interviews and agree to follow a plan.

If participation requirements apply to you and you don’t meet them, your payment may stop.
