Have your say on the Disability Support Pension


The Brotherhood of St. Laurence (BSL) are putting together a submission for a Senate inquiry into the Disability Support Pension (DSP).

You can out find out more about the inquiry here: Purpose, intent and adequacy of the Disability Support Pension – Parliament of Australia (

We want to include the perspectives of people who have recently applied for a DSP, either for themselves or someone they care for.

We are interested in hearing about people’s experiences of:

  • the general application process
  • whether you could find help if needed
  • what it was like providing assessments and other forms of evidence
  • what happened if your application was unsuccessful.

Any information you give us will only be viewed by people at BSL who are working on the submission and will not be used for any other purpose. Information provided will not be linked to any one person or identifiable.

If you are interested in sharing your experiences, you can complete the survey here by July 9.

If you would like more information about the submission process you can contact Senior Policy Advisor at BSL Debra Parnell at
