How to get it
You don’t need to apply for the Carer Supplement. We’ll automatically pay you if you’re eligible.
You will get the Carer Supplement each year for as long as you remain eligible.
We will assess your eligibility for Child Disability Assistance Payment separately.
The supplement is a fixed rate of $600 each year for each eligible payment. You’ll get this amount on top of your regular payment.
