The second round of Economic Support Payments is coming
1 July 2020
We’ll pay the second $750 Economic Support Payment to eligible people in July.
From 13 July, we'll start issuing the second $750 Economic Support Payment (ESP) to eligible people.
This is part of the Australian Government’s financial support for people affected by coronavirus.
The second ESP is an additional payment if you’re both:
- living in Australia
- get an eligible payment or concession card on 10 July 2020.
You won’t get the second ESP if you’re getting the Coronavirus Supplement, even if you got the first one.
If you’re eligible, we’ll pay it straight into your bank account. You don’t need to do anything.
If you have a Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card, make sure we have your bank account details. Read more about how to update your bank account details through your Centrelink Online Account.
If you claim Family Tax Benefit (FTB) as a lump sum, you’ll get your ESP with your lump sum. You’ll get:
- your first ESP after you’ve claimed for 2019-20 and confirmed your income, you can’t do this until July 2020
- your second ESP after you’ve claimed for 2020-21 and confirmed your income, you can’t do this until July 2021.
The ESP is non-taxable and doesn’t count as income.
When you’ll see it in your bank account
The exact date will be different for everyone. It’s not linked to your regular payment date.
We’ll start issuing it from 13 July 2020. You should see it in your bank account sometime between 15 July and the end of July.
You may see it in your bank account up to 48 hours before it appears in your online account.
If you haven’t got your payment by the end of July, and you think you should have, phone us. This is unless you’re claiming FTB as a lump sum.

From 3 July 2020, we’ll pay eligible carers the Carer Supplement. Carers may also get the Child Disability Assistance Payment.
We’ll revalue market linked investments, shares and securities to ensure we’re paying you the correct amount.
