BSWAT Payment Scheme
Thousands of supported employees with intellectual impairment, who were paid using the Business Services Wage Assessment Tool (BSWAT), could be entitled to a one-off payment through the Australian Government’s BSWAT Payment Scheme.
To receive a payment, a supported employee must have registered with the Payment Scheme by 30 April 2017.
If a supported employee did not register with the Payment Scheme, they cannot apply for a payment - even if they may have been eligible.
Supported employees who have registered with the scheme have until 30 November 2017 to apply for a payment.
A payment will not impact a supported employee's current job or wages, and it will not affect their Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE).
For more information, call the BSWAT Payment Scheme hotline on 1800 799 515 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
