Disability Employment Services (DES) helps people with intellectual disability find work and keep a job in open employment. The Australian Government runs DES.

Working out if someone is eligible for DES can be complicated. In this section, we explain:

  • what makes a person eligible for DES
  • how DES and the Disability Support Pension (DSP) work together
  • what people can expect from a DES provider – their rights and responsibilities.
