Who can get it
You’ll automatically get the Youth Disability Supplement if you’re under 21, and you get Disability Support Pension (DSP).
Read more about DSP.
You may also get it if you're under 22 and get either:
- Youth Allowance as a job seeker, full time student or Australian Apprentice, or
- ABSTUDY as a full time student or Australian Apprentice.
If you’re getting Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY you also need a current Employment Services Assessment. It must show that you have an illness, injury or disability that both:
- stops you from working 30 or more hours a week
- will last more than 2 years.
We’ll refer you for an Employment Services Assessment if you need one.
You don’t need to apply for Youth Disability Supplement.
