Services Australia

Back to the A-Z of open employment

Services Australia is an Australian Government department that provides government payments and services.

Services Australia used to be called the Department of Human Services. It gives people access to social, health and other payments and services – including Centrelink payments like the Disability Support Pension (DSP).

Services Australia doesn’t provide National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding. That is the role of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

Centrelink is an Australian Government service that provides payments and services to people who need them.
