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 $26,000 per annum (indexed from 2021), or $500 per week(1), for:
    • A universal age pension from the age of 65, with all pensioners to receive this 'single' rate, regardless of their relationship status
    • Jobseeker
    • Disability support pension
  • Provide universal healthcare, including free basic dental care (also see Health policy)
  • Manage the NDIS with efficiency and priority for Australia’s high-needs individuals and families (also see Health policy)
  • Increase investment in public housing (also see Housing Affordability policy)
  • Develop better quality aged, community and home care facilities and standards (also see Ageing 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.
