Calls to extend coronavirus supplement to DSP recipients

Published

The Morrison government is being urged to extend its coronavirus supplement to the Disability Support Pension, after recipients were excluded from this latest stimulus measure.

This coronavirus supplement – a $550 fortnightly increase to unemployment payments for six months – will be paid to both new and existing recipients of the JobSeeker Payment, Youth Allowance Jobseeker, Parenting Payment, Farm Household Allowance and Special Benefit. 

On Monday night, the government agreed to extend the supplement to students and apprentices, but there was no reprieve for Disability Support Pension (DSP) recipients.
