Disability Connect - Work & Income Support Seminars

Disability Connect are delighted to announce another round of Work and Income Supports related to Disability seminars. Please click here to see the flier.  To book please contact us on 09 636 0351 or admin@disabilityconnect.org.nz.  Please provide a phone number and email address when booking.

Work & Income Support Seminar

For individuals and families raising a child with a disability

This seminar is hosted by Disability Connect and will be presented by Vaughan Dodd and colleagues (Work and Income Disability Advisors).

This seminar is free to family members and 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.
