How to manage your payment
Your options and obligations for Special Benefit.
There are things you must do to keep getting your payment and have a better chance of finding work.
We'll assess the impact of your disability, illness, injury or other barriers to work.
We review your Special Benefit to make sure you’re still eligible and getting the right amount.
We need to know about changes that could reduce, increase or stop your Special Benefit payment.
There are rules about when you can get your Special Benefit when you travel outside Australia.
How much you or your partner earn affects your payment. We need to know what you both earn so we pay the right amount.
If you get Special Benefit and you’re Age Pension age, you can apply to transfer to Age Pension.
