The monthly Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA) payment for a child with autism is no longer payable once the child reaches the age of 16. On reaching the age of 16 the child is entitled to apply for a Disabilty Allowance payment. Disabilty Allowance is a means-tested payment for people with a specified disability aged between 16 and under 66.
1. The person must be substantially restricted in undertaking suitable employment arising from medical assessment or examination of the person’s disability.
2. Be aged between 16 and under the age of 66
3. Be habitually resident in the state.
4. Satisfy a means test if required.
