BSWAT Payment Scheme

Please note: Due to maintenance the BSWAT Registration form will be unavailable between 8am and 9am AEST on Sunday 30 April.

Thousands of supported employees with intellectual impairment, who were paid using the Business Services Wage Assessment Tool (BSWAT), are entitled to a one-off payment through the Australian Government’s BSWAT Payment Scheme.

To receive a payment, a person must register with the scheme before 30 April 2017.

A payment will not impact a supported employee’s current job, and it will not affect their ADE.

For more information, call the BSWAT Payment Scheme hotline on 1800 799 515 or send an email to bswatpayments@dss.gov.au.
