Change of circumstances

We need to know about changes that could reduce or stop your Mobility Allowance payment.

You must tell us if any of the following happen:

  • your personal circumstances change
  • you change address
  • you start or finish work, study or training
  • your work, study or training load changes
  • you stop looking for work with your Employment Services Provider.

If you get an approved National Disability Insurance Scheme plan, you won’t be eligible for Mobility Allowance anymore. If your Mobility Allowance doesn’t stop, you need to tell us.

You have 14 days to tell us about any changes. If you don’t do this, we may pay you too much and you’ll have to pay the money back.

If you deliberately don’t tell us about changes, we could charge you with fraud. We may impose a recovery fee if you give us incorrect information about your employment income.
