Federal Budget: Australian pensioners on social welfare payments to receive one-off $250 cash top-up

A $250 cash top-up is on the way for people on social welfare payments to help vulnerable Australians with cost of living pressures.

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg will announce the one-off cash payment in Tuesday’s Federal Budget with aged pensioners and low-income families that receive financial support eligible for the bonus.

However, parents on family payments will not be able to apply for the payment.

About 4.6 million Australians currently receive a pension or an allowance from the Federal Government as income support, while many others get cash transfer payments for their families, or may be entitled to concession cards or other assistance.

It is not yet known if the $250 payment will be given to people on a part-pension.
