How much Disability Support Pension you will get, and your payment options.
In this section
How much Disability Support Pension (DSP) you can get depends on your age and living conditions.
Reaching Age Pension age
If you’re getting Disability Support Pension and reach Age Pension age, you can transfer to Age Pension.
Transfer to Age Pension
If you’re Age Pension age and get an eligible payment, you can apply to transfer to Age Pension.
Pensioner Concession Card
If your Disability Support Pension stops, you may still get your Pensioner Concession Card.
You may get part of your income support payment or Family Tax Benefit (Part A) early. This is an advance payment. You pay it back later out of your payments from us.
Weekly payment option
Some people can get income support payments each week instead of each fortnight.
Transitional rate of pension
The transitional rate started in 2009 for pensioners who would get a lower rate if we used the new income test.
Overdrawn bank account
You can get help to manage your money if your bank account is overdrawn.
