The increase in pension and Jobseeker payments has been announced.

Welfare payments for pensioners, jobseekers, and students are poised to rise next week with the implementation of indexation on payments. Additionally, adjustments will enable individuals receiving social security to earn slightly more before their payments are impacted, effective from Wednesday, March 20.

According to the new guidelines, single parent payments will increase by $17.50 per fortnight, while couples will see a rise of $12.30.

Singles on aged, disability support, or carer payments will receive just over $1116 per fortnight, reflecting an increase of $19.60.
