Disability Medical Assessment

You may need to attend an assessment when you claim Disability Support Pension (DSP). If you already get DSP, you may need to do this as part of a medical review.

If we assess your claim under general medical rules, we may ask you to attend a Disability Medical Assessment. Not everyone who claims DSP needs to attend. We’ll contact you if you need to attend.

You may also need to attend if you’re already getting DSP. This is so we can check if you still meet the DSP medical rules.
