PENSIONERS now know how much more they will receive after welfare payments are increased this month. From September 20, age and disability support pensioners will receive an extra $6.10 a fortnight to $894.40 for singles and $4.60 a fortnight to $674.20 for each member of a couple. These amounts include supplements. The increase is part of the twice yearly indexation that sees the pension amount adjusted every March and September.
