What qualifies you for Mobility Allowance?

To qualify for the Mobility Allowance in Australia, you need to meet certain eligibility criteria. These criteria are set by Services Australia, the government agency responsible for administering the Mobility Allowance. The specific qualifications include:

  1. Age: You must be at least 16 years old and below Age Pension age.
  2. Disability or Medical Condition: You need to have a disability, injury, or medical condition that causes significant and long-term impairment, making it difficult for you to use public transportation without substantial assistance. The disability or medical condition should have lasted, or is likely to last, for at least six months.
  3. Work, Study, or Training Requirement: You must be participating in work, paid employment, self-employment, voluntary work, vocational training, education, or a combination of these activities for at least 32 hours per month. This requirement ensures that the Mobility Allowance supports individuals who need assistance with transportation to engage in work-related or education-related activities.
  4. Meet Residence Rules: To get your payment, you must be living in Australia as an Australian resident. If you’ve recently arrived as a resident in Australia, you may have to wait 2 or 4 years to get this payment.

It’s important to note that the specific details and requirements for the Mobility Allowance may be subject to change over time. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, I recommend contacting Services Australia directly or visiting their official website. They can provide detailed guidance on eligibility and assist you with the application process.
