The DSP is financial help for people with a permanent disability or medical condition that stops them from working.
The person’s condition may be any of the following:
There are about 3.96 million people with a disability in Australia. Of these, around 750,000 get Disability Support Pension (DSP). There are strict medical and other eligibility criteria for DSP. Not everyone who has a disability will be eligible.
People who aren’t eligible for DSP may get other income support payments.
