How to get it

You don’t need to apply for Carer Supplement. If you’re eligible, we’ll pay the supplement straight into your bank account.

If you haven’t got Carer Supplement by early August and you think you’re eligible, you can follow these steps:

  1. Sign into myGov and select Centrelink.
  2. Select Payments and claims, followed by Manage payments and My payments and check to see if we’ve paid you.
  3. Check the bank account details you told us are correct.
  4. If the payment isn’t showing, call our Disability, sickness and carers line.

You'll get the Carer Supplement each year for as long as you remain eligible.

We'll assess your eligibility for Child Disability Assistance Payment separately.
