If you receive Australian Government benefits income support from Centrelink or the Department of Veteran Affairs, you should provide a copy which is current* and shows your full name, or name and address (or indicates your relationship to the person whose name and address is listed).
Eligible benefits include:
- Centrelink Health Care Card
- Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card
- Department of Veteran Affairs Health Card
- Youth Allowance
- JobSeeker Payment
- Disability Support Pension
- Carer Payment
Please note, Family Tax Benefits, JobKeeper or Carer Allowance are not considered eligible within this category. Please see the If you live... categories below.
If you receive a Parenting Payment, a copy of your eligible low-income health care card is preferred. If your most recent statement* clearly shows that you receive the maximum payment rate, you can also provide this evidence.
If your statement does not show that you receive the maximum Parenting Payment, and you do not have a current low-income health care card, your Parenting Payment statement must be accompanied by an ATO Notice of Assessment to be considered. Please see the If you live... categories below.
If you are providing a copy of your card, the document must show a current expiry date and your full name.
If you are submitting an income statement, it should be current* and show the type and amount of Centrelink payments you receive (excluding any low non-income tested support such as Family Tax Benefit Part A or B, Childcare Benefits and/or Carer Allowance). Please ensure your full name is stated on all supporting documentation including any screenshots.
To ensure you are providing appropriate evidence of your Centrelink payments, please view our examples of eligible (PDF, 177KB) and ineligible (PDF, 302KB) evidence.
