Finding out if you're eligible for government support

How do I know if I'm eligible?

You can access the Commonwealth Home Support Programme if you are over 65 and need support to continue living independently at home. The minimum age is lowered to 50 in certain circumstances.

For Home Care Packages, you will need to have a care assessment with the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS). They will consider your unique circumstances and treat every case individually.

What to know

How to get your eligibility assessed

Step 1

Step 2

You will need an assessment in your home to determine your eligibility for government funded in-home care. This will be organised through My Aged Care.

Step 3

If your income is over a certain amount, currently around $27,000, the Department of Human Services will do an income assessment to determine how much you need to contribute to your care.
