Disability Support Pension Reports
If you require a report to support your application for a Disability Support Pension (DSP), Dr Rebecca Guest can assist you.
The Disability Support Pension (DSP) provides financial help if you have a physical, intellectual or psychiatric condition that is likely to persist for more than 2 years and stops you from working.
As part of your application for DSP, you need to provide medical evidence which may include a report from a psychologist, depending on your disability or medical condition.
For more information about Disability Support Pensions, please visit the Services Australia website.
Dr Rebecca Guest is a Senior Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years’ experience in preparing medical evidence reports for DSP applicants. Rebecca continually monitors government legislation changes, enabling her to ensure that the DSP reports she prepares meet all relevant guidelines.
How does the DSP Medical Evidence Report process work?
Step 1 - Enquiry
Step 2 - Initial Consultation
Dr Rebecca Guest will see you for an initial session during which she will ask you relevant questions regarding your symptoms, the impact on your life and the diagnosis you have received from your treating doctor in order to obtain a full history of your disability or condition.
Step 3 - Complete Assessments
Following your initial consultation, Rebecca will ask you to complete several online assessments, and one in-person assessment that will be conducted by Rebecca or a psychologist under Rebecca’s supervision.
Step 4 - Report
Rebecca will provide you with a comprehensive report which can be submitted to the Department of Social Services. The report will be available to you usually within two weeks of completing your individual session and all assessments, depending on the complexity of your situation.
