Public holiday closures, reporting and payment arrangements
29 October 2020
We’re closed for Christmas and New Year. We want to help you plan so you still get paid.
We’ll close on the following days:
- Friday 25 December 2020
- Monday 28 December 2020
- Tuesday 29 December 2020
- Friday 1 January 2021.
Your Centrelink payment and reporting dates may change due to the Christmas and New Year holiday closure. We may pay you early.

We’re extending some temporary changes to our payments that we made because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The pause on debt in response to COVID-19 is ending. But if you owe money, you won’t need to repay it until next year.
