The amount of Sickness Allowance you can get depends on your income and assets.
We update rates on 20 March and 20 September each year. The table is a guide only.

|Single with no children||$545.80|
|Single with dependent children||$590.40|
|Single, 60 years or older but under age pension age, after 9 months of regular payment||$590.40|
We regularly review your circumstances to make sure you get the right amount. If your circumstances change, this may affect your payment.
