Disability Support Pension

Financial help if you have a permanent physical, intellectual or psychiatric condition that stops you from working.

To get Disability Support Pension (DSP), you need to meet both:

  • non-medical rules
  • medical rules.

To find out if this is the right payment for you, read more about who can get it.

You can also read about how we assess your claim. This’ll help you to prepare what you need for your claim.

Not everyone with disability or a medical condition can get DSP. If you can’t get DSP, you may be able to get other payments.
