You can get more than one supplement.
You can get the supplement for both of the following:
- an eligible income support payment
- each person you get Carer Allowance for.
If you share the care of the person and the other carer is not your partner, you’ll get a part rate of Carer Supplement. How much you get depends on how much care you provide.
How you’re paid
The supplement will go into your nominated bank account in one lump sum each year.
If your payments are income managed, your supplement will be income managed as well.
