High-Risk Settings Pandemic Payment is a lump sum payment. It’s to help you during the time you can’t go to work and earn an income, because you have tested positive for COVID-19.
To see the eligibility rules, read who can get it.
If you need another payment or service, read more about getting a Centrelink payment.
If you need additional support we also have:
- social workers who can provide short term counselling and refer you to other services
- information to help you manage your money.
You need to meet eligibility requirements to get the High-Risk Settings Pandemic Payment (HRSPP).
Not everyone who can’t work due to testing positive for COVID-19 will be eligible for High-Risk Settings Pandemic Payment (HRSPP).
