Supported Living Payment - deduction tables

Use this table to estimate how much will be deducted from your Supported Living Payment benefit payment if you earn income.

Your deductions

Clients who are receiving Supported Living Payment can receive up to $115.00 per week before their income will affect their benefit.

For clients who earn over $115.00 per week:

  • income between $115.00 and $215.00 per week their benefit is reduced by 30 cents for each $1.00 of income
  • income over $215.00 per week their benefit is reduced by 70 cents for every $1.00 of income.

If you have personal earnings, eg you're working, you can earn up to $135 a week before tax, before your payment is affected.

Any other payments you get, eg, Accommodation Supplement, may also be affected.

If you earn over a certain amount, you won't qualify for Supported Living Payment. We call this the 'Gross weekly income cut-out point'.
