Submissions invited for Disability Support Pension inquiry

The purpose of Disability Support Pension (DSP), eligibility criteria and recipient experiences will all be examined during an upcoming Senate Community Affairs References Committee inquiry.

Deputy Chair Senator Wendy Askew said the Committee called for submissions yesterday (17 May) in relation to the Purpose, Intent and Adequacy of the Disability Support Pension inquiry.

“We want to receive submissions from current and past DSP recipients, as well as people who have applied for this income support payment previously or those who are in the process of applying now. We’d also like to hear from organisations providing support within the community,” Senator Askew said.

“The Committee is initially asking for written submissions that address the inquiry’s term of reference. We will also hold public hearings so Committee members can hear from people who have first-hand experience of Disability Support Pension or expertise relating to how this income support payment impacts individuals, families and the community.”

Submissions can be made until 25 June 2021. For more information on making a submission to this inquiry, visit: www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Community_Affairs/DisabilitySupportPensio
