Better protect and support the most vulnerable Australians, while prioritising fairness and lowering levels of wealth inequality.

Policy Methods (Federal & State)

To help achieve this Sustainable Australia Party will:

  • Properly measure unemployment and underemployment (also see Job Guarantee policy)
  • Provide adequate income to help prevent people from living below the poverty line, including a simplified and standardised welfare payment of approximately $26,000 per annum, or approximately $500 per week(1), for:
    • A universal age pension from the age of 65
    • Jobseeker
    • Disability support pension
  • Provide universal free healthcare, including dental care (also see Health policy)
  • Increase investment in public housing (also see Housing Affordability policy)


  1. As of, and indexed from, 2021. Most relative poverty estimates would put the single adult poverty line at around $800 to $1,000 per fortnight.
