    I am sorry but as this site is for the over 50 community, not many of us know much about the dpb. Try ringing WINZ or if you are in OZ, then Centrelink should have the details as we have a reciprical arrangement with them for most benefits and pensions.

    Hi ,
    Just found out about this myself and have recently secured a disability benefit from WINZ. (ongoing shoulder and other problems) I rang the 0800 number (call Centre) and they told me what I could apply for (THEY’LL SEND YOU THE STANDARD CLAIM FORM) with listed disabilities acceptable and others?…rather than waiting to see your case manager. I now get lawns, some gardening and outside windows washed not each time ‘tho. One bloke does it all. I took 2-3 quotes to my case manager AFTER the Doctor had signed the standard claim form and they backdate it to the time you ring to make the appointment. Hope this too can be helpful.

    for those who are interested go to lawaccess.com , type in work and income, it tells you what they the staff are told to do, works for other dept ments to even doctors, may help some people.
    this was in our local paper some months ago.

    I am looking to get the attention of anyone who has been unfairly treated by WINZ (policies), especially those who have worked hard and who have a even modicum of assets, and who then cannot get a job due to age discrimination. Currently you are then denied a liveable benefit. If you have a story to tell, please go to msd-winz-billboardprotest.webs.com and tell your story anonymously. It would be great if you’re passionate enough to register to protest about the policies, as well. Or ring talkback with your protest/objections. That monolithic dinosaur needs holding to account.
