From 5 July, we’ll pay eligible carers the Carer Supplement. They may also get the Child Disability Assistance Payment.

If you get an eligible payment for 1 July 2021, we’ll pay you:

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 and 31 July 2021.

If you don’t get the payments by 31 July 2021 and think you’re eligible, follow these steps:

  1. Go to myGov and sign in to access your Centrelink online account.
  2. Go to ‘Payments and claims’ then ‘Manage payments’ then ‘My payments’. Check to see if we’ve issued the payment to you.
  3. Check the bank account details you registered with us are correct.
  4. Call the Carers line if the payment isn’t showing.
