How much can I get?

Print page

Basic Supplementary Welfare Allowance is made up of a personal rate for the applicant and additional increases for qualified adults and children. A qualified child is a person under age 18 who lives with you and depends on you for financial support.

A child aged 18 and up to age 22 continues to qualify until the end of the academic year in which they reach age 22 if they are in full-time education by day.

The current rates of payment are available in the Department of Social and Family Affairs Rates of Payment booklet SW 19.
