What the types of reviews are
There are a number of reviews you may need to do to keep getting DSP.
We may ask you to take part in a medical review.
This helps us make sure that:
- we have up to date information about the impact of your conditions
- you meet current medical rules for DSP.
Read more about medical reviews and what to do if we contact you to participate in a review.
We may ask you to take part in a non-medical review.
This helps us make sure that you still meet the non-medical rules, such as:
- relationship status
- any other factors that may affect your DSP.
We may also ask you to confirm or update your and your partner’s current earnings.
If you live outside Australia and are over 80 you’ll need to complete a proof of life review.
Income stream reviews
If you receive regular payments from accumulated superannuation contributions, we’ll ask you to report on them each year. We do this because how much you earn affects your payment. Read more about income stream reviews.
What else you need to know
You need to tell us if you have a change of circumstances.
You also need to meet participation requirements if they apply to you.
If we stop your DSP you may be able to get other payments.
Each financial year we review certain types of income streams. We do this to ensure we assess your payments and concession cards correctly.
If you’re getting Disability Support Pension (DSP), we may do a review to check you still meet medical rules.
If we’ve sent a letter to your myGov Inbox asking you to confirm current earnings, read this page. You need to confirm your and your partner’s earnings if we ask.
