If you’re a pensioner currently receiving support through Centrelink, you may be eligible for extra help with bills and medicine costs through the Pension Supplement. This supplement is a combined payment of Pharmaceutical Allowance, Utilities Allowance, GST Supplement and Telephone Allowance.
To receive the supplement you’ll need to meet certain criteria.
You don’t need to do anything. The Department of Human Services will pay you each fortnight with your support payment.
