Hi, I’m new to the site and I appologise if this is in the wrong place. I thought i’d Put the question here as it comes under caring for babies in my opinion, if not, I appologise.

I’m from AQueensland, Australia. I’m on the DSP blind pension and my partners on newstart. He is a perminant resident and looking to work. I’m an Australian citizen and I’m on the DSP blind pension. I’m going to start studying. We want to look into IVF. Our only concern is finance.

The DSP blind pensions Not means tested and newstart is. I’m wondering if I could claim the parenting payment on top of the blind pension and if so if it’d effect newstart.

If you have any opinion regarding this question, your thoughts are appreciated.
