Information session: Work and the Disability Support Pension

How many hours can you work while on the disability support pension (DSP)? Will working affect your payment? How do you report your work hours and wages to Centrelink? Come along for information, tips and practical advice on balancing the DSP with paid work.
In the DREAM Spotlight Series, we talk to leaders with disability about their career highlights and thoughts on access and inclusion.

Have you ever experienced discrimination in the workplace? 

Workplace discrimination is far too common for young people with disability. It’s important to know what it looks like, and what you can do when it happens.
 
Hear from industry experts, young people, and employers, with easy to understand information, tips, and stories to help you learn about Fair Work, reporting and making claims.
How many hours can you work while on the Disability Support Pension (DSP)? What do you need to report to Centrelink? How much can you earn before your DSP payments are impacted or stopped?  
 
Working while on the DSP can be confusing and complicated. In this online panel, we have advocates from the Disability Resources Centre (DRC) Advocacy, representatives from Services Australia, and people with lived experience of working while on the DSP to give you tips and answer the big questions.
