Government support for residents

March 26, 2020

The Government is providing support for individuals to assist them during the next six months.

This includes expanding eligibility to income support payments and establishing a new, time‑limited Coronavirus supplement to be paid at a rate of $550 per fortnight. This supplement will be paid to both existing and new recipients of the eligible payment categories. These changes will apply for the next six months and will not be income tested.

Read the fact sheet here for a full list of income support for individuals.
