What is the enhanced Income Management program?

25 November 2022

The enhanced IM program is an initiative of the Australian Government.

Under the enhanced IM program, a portion of your income support payments will be deposited into your enhanced IM account. You access your enhanced Income Management account with a SmartCard. There are restrictions on enhanced IM accounts to prevent access to cash and the purchasing of alcohol, gambling, tobacco or pornography products, and specific gift and prepaid cards. The remaining portion of your welfare payment is deposited into your regular bank account. To find out more about the portion of your welfare payment that will be placed in your enhanced IM account, visit our cardholder page.

Indue Limited, is a card provider for the enhanced IM program.

For further information about the enhanced IM program, please contact Services Australia on the SmartCard eIM hotline on 1800 252 604.
