If you get an eligible payment for a period that includes 1 July 2022, we’ll pay you:

  • Carer Supplement of up to $600 for each eligible person in your care
  • Child Disability Assistance Payment of up to $1,000 for each eligible child younger than 16 in your care.

You don’t need to do anything to get either of these payments. If you’re eligible, we’ll pay them into your bank account between 5 July and 2 August 2022.

If you don’t get the payment by 2 August 2022 and think you’re eligible, check how to get Carer Supplement and Child Disability Assistance Payment.
