Dave Matthews is among the low-income earners and retirees who are benefiting from a one-off, dual living allowance payment to provide relief to those who are struggling.

The social housing tenant is one of 192,000 South Australians who will receive up to $449 in cash directly into their bank accounts under a program announced in the state budget earlier this year.

Premier Peter Malinauskas said it was the state government’s largest payment to date to concession card holders and low-income earners.

“With rising pressures on the cost of living, inflation and rising interest rates, this payment could not come at a better time,” he said.

“This one-time, double-living allowance payment was what we promised – and we’re delivering it now.”

Under the concession scheme, homeowners get $449 while renters get $224.60 per household.

Homeowners who are self-funded retirees with a Commonwealth Senior Health Card also get $224.60 per household.

The cost-of-living concession replaced the council concession to help people on low or fixed incomes with their general living expenses, such as council, utility, and medical bills.

All existing and eligible new customers who applied by July 1st should receive their payment by the end of this month.

New applicants will be paid if they apply by December 31st.

To qualify, you must live in a property and receive a Centrelink payment, hold an eligible card, or meet low-income requirements.

Renters may not live with anyone earning more than the low-income provisions unless they are receiving either a grant from Centrelink or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, or are your spouse, domestic partner, or dependent.

To apply you will need your Centrelink customer reference number, DVA file number or a copy of your most recent tax assessment notice.
