|Disability Support Pension|
The Australian government offers an Age Pension for older citizens who cannot fully fund their retirement through an allocated pension. This pension is paid through Centrelink. Pension payments are described by the government as an “adequate” income in retirement. However, many seniors would not agree as a single Age Pension entitlement, with all supplements, is currently around $19,400 per annum.
