If you’ll lose your regular source of income while doing an away from base activity, let us know. We may be able to pay you ABSTUDY Living Allowance for that time. Your regular source of income could be either:
- an income support payment
- a job where you must use leave without pay to attend the activity.
There are limits on the number of trips and the number of days you can get Away from Base Assistance.
We help with some meals and accommodation costs when you attend an away from base activity.
