Do I get a $600 bonus?

Font Size:

Someone had told James that recipients of the Age and Disability Support Pension get a bi-annual bonus, but he can’t remember ever having received this before.

Q. James

A friend of mine has told me that all old age pensioners and disability recipients get a six-monthly bonus of about $600. Is this correct as I can’t ever remember getting this payment?

A. The only payment of which I am aware and which is similar to that you mention is the Carer Supplement. You can find out more by clicking the link below.
