12 Oct 2015 11:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Disability Connect is delighted to announce another two Work and Income support in Disability seminars at two locations - Henderson and Penrose. To book please contact us on 636-0351 or email admin@disabilityconnect.org.nz.

 Work & Income Support Seminars - For individuals and families raising a child with a disability

Disability Connect is running two seminars in Auckland to explore Work and Income supports related to disability. This seminar is hosted by Disability Connect and will be presented by Vaughan Dodd and colleagues (Work and Income Disability Advisors). Click here to view a pdf of the flier.

This free seminar will clearly explain the types of Work and Income supports which individuals may be eligible for if living with a disability or raising a child with a disability. Eligibility criteria will be explained – also whether particular supports are means tested or not, and income thresholds if they are.

The main Work and Income supports being discussed are:

  • Supported Living Payment
  • Accommodation Supplement
  • Child Disability Allowance
  • Disability Allowance
  • Supported Living Payment – Care of Sick and Infirm

As Work and Income Disability Advisors these presenters cannot participate in personal discussions regarding individual’s circumstances – Disability Advisors liaise directly with frontline Work and Income staff. Their presentation will be broad and informational. Any questions or individual issues can be addressed to Disability Connect staff and we will endeavour to have your questions answered.

Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available from 30 minutes prior to the start of the seminar.
