Job capacity assessments

If a student with disability is seeking support to gain employment, they may be asked to take a job capacity assessment.

A job capacity assessment will determine the impact of a medical condition or disability on a young person's ability to work and whether they would benefit from employment assistance. It will also identify barriers preventing the young person from working or participating in programs and recommends what can be done to help.

A job capacity assessment is also used to help determine medical eligibility for the Disability support pension (DSP).

A person may be referred for a job capacity assessment if they:

  • are claiming DSP
  • are undergoing a review of their medical eligibility for DSP

or

  • have asked the department to determine their entitlement for indefinite portability of your DSP.

Further information about job capacity assessment can be found on the Department of Human Services website.
