Change centrelink legislation for disability pensions

This petition had 6 supporters

Even If you are diagnosed by medical professionals and found to be unsuitable for work ever again if they recommend further treatment to make you more comfortable your case under centrelink will be found to be unresolved and you are refused the disability pension. Then just to add insult to injury you can be told that you could do low impact work

I have been diagnosed with severe Bulous Emphasema as a result òf genetic predisposition dust and chemicals. I worked on farms my entire working life of 40 years plus . Just sitting around the house requires me to sleep every couple of hours I don't know how much more low impact it could be. The centrelink legislation doesn't take into account that you need the pension to see  specialist and to buy your medication both of which you need to survive not to mention food and bills. I have sold one vehicle at a huge loss just to survive.
